Topic: It's About Time! Managing Priorities in Research and Mentoring Gone are the carefree days of your postdoc days, where you could commit your time solely to research. Group Leaders experience a constant barrage of tasks, both large and small, that must be balanced correctly in order to achieve success. Engage with other early career group leaders, the ISSCR Board of Directors, and the ISSCR Junior Investigator Committee to discuss strategies and experiences on time management to maximize your mentorship, research, and well-being.

Innovation Showcase: HUMAN IPSCS FOR CNS DRUG DISCOVERY - FUNCTIONAL PHENOTYPE CHARACTERIZATION AND NOVEL BIOMARKERS BY HIGH-RESOLUTION MICROELECTRODE ARRAY (MEA) TECHNOLOGY - MaxWell Biosystems
Junior Investigators are invited to meet with leaders over lunch to discuss research techniques and topics, career paths and more. These relaxed networking luncheons allow ISSCR trainee members to actively discuss topics of common interest with peers and leaders in our community. Closer to the event, you will be invited to select your table leader.
Meet-up Hub: Guangzhou Regenerative Medicine and Health Guangdong Provincial Laboratory Introduction
Guangzhou Regenerative Medicine and Health Guangdong Provincial Laboratory (GRMH-GDL) was established by Guangdong province on December 22, 2017 to enhance research ability. At present, a number of international high level scientists have joined GRMH-GDL. More than 50 articles have been published in Cell, Nature and other international Journals, making important contributions to scientific research.
Meet-up Hub: How EBiSC helps researchers to access and share high-quality research-grade iPSC lines
The European Bank of induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (EBiSC) enables academic and commercial researchers to access high-quality hiPSC lines across >36 disease backgrounds including healthy ‘disease-free’ individuals, along with associated datasets. Depositing hiPSC lines generated in your research project (such as StemBANCC and HipSci) assures secure storage, ease of distribution to other researchers and sustainability of research assets at project end. Meet with representatives of the second project phase of the European Bank for induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (EBiSC2) and discuss how EBiSC can help you with ordering lines from the EBiSC catalogue; depositing your hiPSC lines into EBiSC; planning your iPSC research project to simplify hiPSC line deposition; progressing your research through use of EBiSC services, including:hiPSC reprogramming, Gene-editing, Banking, and Quality Control. Learn more about ongoing developments within EBiSC2 to improve hiPSC banking, differentiation and Quality Control using high-throughput and automated technologies, including supply of differentiated cell populations direct to users.
The ISSCR Industry Committee invites interested attendees to stop by the Meet-up Hub to exchange and discuss about various industry-related topics. These may include potential entry opportunities, potential career paths and developments in the industry.
Innovation Showcase: A NEW HSC EXPANSION MEDIUM FOR SUPERIOR CD34+ CELL EXPANSION AND ENGRAFTMENT USED IN COMBINATION WITH A NOVEL GENE TAGGING SYSTEM FOR EFFICIENT GENE EDITING CONFIRMATION AND LINEAGE TRACKING - Thermo Fisher Scientific
Meet-up Hub: Meet the Editors of Stem Cell Reports
Do you have a paper nearly ready for submission? Are you
looking to find more information about the ISSCR’s official
journal, Stem Cell Reports? Come and meet the editors at
this Meet-Up to discuss your work, our recently published
issues, and any topics of interest around open-access,
scientific publishing. Hear more about what the journal
means, now heading into its sixth year, for the ISSCR.
Are Policy, Ethics, or Regulatory issues impacting your research? Stop by the Meetup Hub to discuss these issues with ISSCR leaders and find out about opportunities to get involved in the ISSCR’s advocacy program.
What is your career vision? Do you have a desire to work in science, but are unsure exactly what the right future job looks like? No matter if you need to decide what to do after completing your master, your PhD, or your post-doc, making the decisions that set the course of your career can be daunting. Should I continue along the academic path to attempt starting my own group or should I seek my fortune in industry? Should I study a new field or should I stick with what I already know? Am I sure that the current plan is really what would be fulfilling and right for me later down the road? Are there other career avenues that I haven’t yet considered? And what if I find out that the path I chose is not the right one for me. How difficult will it be to change? If these are questions keeping you up at night, then this is the luncheon for you! Come listen to our panelists tell the stories of their “not-so-linear” careers, and of the turns they took that allowed them to successfully reach their goals. Find inspiration in how to change and shape your journey in science, and have your questions answered on how you may move your own career forward.
Meet-up Hub: Diversity, Inclusion, & Equity in Stem Cell Biology
Please join us to learn from each other about inclusive practices to build better research communities that support representation and participation of scientists from diverse backgrounds. This meetup is for individuals from all career stages and institutional profiles to openly discuss barriers to inclusion in stem cell biology and strategies to mitigate them.
