We are pleased to announce the 1st Joint CSH Asia/ISSCR Conference on Cellular Programs & Reprogramming which will be held at the Suzhou Dushu Lake Conference Center in Suzhou, China. The conference will begin at 7.30pm on the evening of Monday October 24th, and will conclude after lunch on Friday October 28th, 2011.

The conference will include eight oral sessions and one poster session covering the latest findings across many topics in stem cell research. Many talks will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. Social events throughout the conference provide ample opportunity for informal interactions.
