Stem Cells in Disease Modelling and Drug Discovery

Date:  01 February 2018


This one-and-a-half day international meeting will be held in Melbourne, Australia, June 17-18 2018, immediately prior to the annual meeting of the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) which will also be held in Melbourne later in the week.

The aim of the meeting will be to bring together stem cell biologists and drug discovery scientists to share science, opinion, and discuss how to harness the potential of stem cell-derived models in drug discovery. 

Oral communications are invited.
