Stemcell Forum

2nd Bochum Stem Cell Forum

On 23rd of September 2010 the 2nd Bochum Stem Cell Forum, funded by the Research Department of Neuroscience, took place at the Events Center of the Ruhr-University Bochum. The topics during this conference ranged from neural stem cells, Hematopoetic System up to potential applications of stem cells in the clinical field as well as stem cell technology.
Besides the very interesting lectures from well-known and respected speakers from universities and institutes in North-Rhine Westphalia the Stem Cell Forum offered young scientists the opportunity to present their work in the field of stem cell research in form of a lecture or a poster. During the poster presentation but also during lunch there was enough time to converse with the guest speakers and to make new contacts.
The event was a great success and shows that stem cell research will continue to grow significantly in Germany in the coming years.
