The International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) is coming to Melbourne and with it, it brings some of the greatest minds in stem cell research, including ARMI’s Director of Research, Professor Peter Currie who will be presenting a session on ‘Stem Cells in Organ Development and Maintenance’.

The not-for-profit organisation, established in 2002, has over 4,000 members from over 60 countries, all of whom work together to foster the exchange and dissemination of research and ideas in the field of stem cells. With the annual meeting taking place in Melbourne this June, it’s an opportunity from which ARMI will undoubtedly benefit.

"This year's ISSCR conference in Melbourne, is quite rightly promoted as the global stem cell event” commented Silvio Tiziani, director of external strategy and planning at ARMI. “The conference provides an ideal opportunity to showcase Australia’s thriving stem cell and regenerative medicine research community. As an important part in the commercialisation of Australian scientific discoveries, CCRM Australia also welcomes all delegates and looks forward to a successful conference."

The annual meeting, to be held from the 20 - 23rd of June, will generate two significant opportunities for ARMI; firstly, the chance to engage with leaders and innovators in the field and secondly, to network with industry specialists. As Director of Research, Peter Currie will be there not only to share his expertise but to introduce ARMI to fellow research scientists. These opportunities not only allow ARMI to leverage contacts and foster relationships in the stem cell space, but also allows us to forecast what the field may look like in the years to come, while simultaneously presenting us the chance to mould the future of regenerative medicine.

With the global regenerative medicine research community expanding, ISSCR continues to grow as the preeminent transnational, cross-disciplinary science-based organisation dedicated to stem cell research. We’re confident our researchers will come away from this event with more knowledge of the biggest, the most exciting and the latest breakthroughs in stem cell research, opening the door to future collaboration.
