CiRA 2017 International Symposium

CiRA organizes an international symposium to promote the worldwide dissemination of its research results and to advance iPS cell research.

We will hold the CiRA International Symposium on November 6-8, 2017, celebrating the 10th anniversary of the discovery of human iPS cells. We will hold its next annual International Symposium on November 6-8, 2017, celebrating 10th anniversary of human iPS cells. The topics of the symposium range from basic research on pluripotency and cutting-edge technologies to novel applications of stem cells.

All stem cell researchers and students are welcome and we would like to encourage you to present your work in the poster session.

The schedule has been changed.
