[Cencelled]CiRA International Symposium 2011 "iPS Cell Research: From Reprogramming to Clinical Application"


CiRA would like to express heartfelt sympathy to the people in the Eastern Japan regions affected by the large earthquake and tsunami on March 11 and offer our deepest condolence to those who lost loved ones in the disaster. Our thoughts are with those people.

Considering the current social situation due to the disaster, we have regrettably decided to cancell the International symposium for scientists on March 31 and April 1.

We would greatly appreciate your understanding.

The Kyoto University Center for iPS cell Research and Application (CiRA) organizes periodic international symposiums, both to promote the worldwide dissemination of its research results and to advance iPS cell research. In the 2011 symposium, we plan to hold not only lectures but poster sessions to increase opportunities for discussion among participants. All stem cell researchers and students are welcome to participate.

This Symposium is intended as a scientific forum for researchers in the field. A public symposium is planned for April 2, 2011; details to be announced separately on Feburuary 1st.

This symposium is funded by the Funding Program for the World-Leading Innovative R&D on Science and Technology (FIRST), Cabinet Offce, Government of Japan.
