9th Dutch Stem Cell Meeting

Friday April 22nd 2016
University Medical Center Utrecht

On the 22th of April 2016, the Dutch Society for Stem Cell Research (DSSCR) organizes the 9th annual meeting, again at the UMCU in Utrecht. The aim of this meeting is to unite people from the Dutch stem cell community, thereby promoting exchange of ideas, data and future plans. The DSSCR meeting is characterized by an interesting diversity of topics such as Pluripotent Stem Cells (Embryonic Stem Cells and Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells etc.), Adult Stem Cells (Haematopoietic Stem Cells, Neuronal Stem Cells, Mesenchymal Stem Cells, Spermatogonial Stem Cells, Organoids, Gastrointestinal Stem Cells etc.) and Developmental Biology. The DSSCR meeting provides a unique opportunity for PhD-students and young post-docs working on stem cells to present and discuss their work to the Dutch stem cell community in oral and poster presentations. Prizes are available for the best presentation.

The Keynote Speaker will be Henrik Semb. Henrik Semb is Director of the Danish Stem Cell Center “DanStem”, located in Copenhagen. His research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying pancreas development. The ultimate aim of his research efforts is to use stem cell technology to develop novel treatment options for diabetes. The title of his seminar is: “Translating new discoveries in beta cell development into expandable production of beta cells from human pluripotent stem cells”.
