The working group Patient Information has published a new flyer with information about therapies with stem cells and the risk of unproven therapies. If you are interested, the central office will mail it to you (contact: email@example.com).
"Let's talk about trouble shooting" - Non-PI meeting
The idea of this non-PI meeting following the GSCN conference (Thursday, 15 Sept. 2016) is to discuss difficulties and pitfalls in your research and get input for solutions. A keynote lecture on "building successful collaborations“, „efficient problem solving“, „ins and outs of successful grant writing“ and „work experience abroad“ will be given by Vanessa Sauer (Münster). If you are interested to participate, you can indicate it when you register for the GSCN conference.
The number of participants is limited to 20 researchers. Deadline for registration: 15 June 2016.
June brings a GSCN newsletter with information to NEW travel grants - find it here.
Our GSCN annual magazine "Applied Stem Cell Research in Germany" is online:
