In 2019, the International Society for Stem Cell Research meeting will be held in Los Angeles on June 26-29. Seizing this opportunity, the Scientific Office of the Embassy of France in the USA is partnering with the French Society for Stem Cell Research, and with the Eli and Edythe Broad CIRM Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC, and ITMO BCDE to organize a France-USA Stem Cell Symposium on June 25.

This symposium will feature keynote and invited lectures from both French and US scientists, as well as selected short talks from young scientists from both countries.

The aim of this event is to foster scientific interactions between the two countries in the field of stem cells and regenerative medicine.

Attendance is free, but a registration is needed.

Note that four €1,500 travel grants are available for selected young French scientists for presenting their data at this symposium, and attending the ISSCR meeting. The call for applications is managed by the FSSCR and is open until March 1st.

Keynote lecture:

Donald B. Kohn, UCLA, Hematopoietic stem cell gene therapy

Invited lectures:

Jérôme Guicheux, Nantes University, France, Stem cells and biomaterials for joint regenerative medicine : from biologically-inspired concepts to clinical transfer 

Jean-Marc Lemaître, Montpellier University, France, Exploring strategies for cell rejuvenation and to improve tissue regeneration

Helen Blau, Stanford, Rejuvenating Muscle Stem Cell Function to Build Strength

Andrew McMahon, University of Southern California, Development of the Mammalian Kidney: Insight and Application

Annelise Bennaceur-Griscelli, Paris, France
