This meeting will incorporate the 5th annual ISCT Australia New Zealand regional meeting and the 7th annual meeting of the ASSCR Australasian Society for Stem Cell Research.
“Narrowing the gap between
stem cell science and cell therapy”
Taking place on 9 – 11 November 2014
Mantra – Lorne, Great Ocean Road, Victoria
The Australasian Society for Stem Cell Research aims to find ways to promote all disciplines of stem cell therapies and biology in Australasia, and to help promote education and research to helping disseminate scientific information.
The ASSCR’s Primary Objectives are to:
- To support stem cell research and encourage scientific exchange to promote research within our region. This will involve facilitation of networks within the stem cell research community in Australia and New Zealand, and worldwide.
- To provide all interested parties with the opportunity to access information relating to scientific, medical and ethical advances in the broad field of stem cell research. A particular emphasis of The Society will be to communicate this information to the general public.
Australian and New Zealand stem cell scientists gathered to establish a regional stem cell society during the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) Conference, held in Cairns 2007. An estimated 45 scientists from around Australia and New Zealand voted overwhelmingly in favour.
A steering committee of representative scientists throughout Australia and New Zealand consolidated the aims and rules of the society. The ASSCR became an Incorporated Association registered in Victoria, Australia in January 2008.
