"We wish to gather outstanding international researchers around the timely subject of stem cells and regenerative medicine at KI in order to stimulate further development within this key strategic area at KI".

Who is the symposium intended for?

"The Nobel Minisymposium is open for all researchers at KI interested in the field of stem cells and regenerative medicine."

What do you hope to achieve with this symposium?

"With this symposium, I hope that we can promote high quality research within the field stem cells and regenerative medicine, and stimulate exchange at senior as well as junior level".
