Welcome to the Second International StemNet Meeting that will take place at the Paolo VI Center in Brescia (Italy) on October 18-20, 2023.
StemNet is a federation of the four main associations of stem cell research in Italy (FIRST, GISM, IPLASS, SCRI) that share and synergize experiences to enhance both the quality and the impact of research in this advancing field.
This meeting marks the constructive relationship among our associations and aims to improve the exchange of relevant and up-to-date information in the field of advanced cell therapy.
The nine sessions of the meeting will spotlight relevant progress in basic and translational stem cell research in human and veterinary medicine. The meeting also includes discussions on critical aspects of biomedical communication and research valorization, and will include a “next generation session” organized by young scientists. A faculty of national and international experts and renowned speakers will foster exciting and inspiring debates of the challenging scientific program.
The best three posters will be awarded with the “Young Investigator Award” (500€) to encourage the attendance of the youngest members of our community.
The meeting is held in the Paolo VI Center located in the ancient Santangelo palace, a merger of two ancient palaces from the 1600s now named after the Brescian Pope Paul VI declared a Saint in 2014.
We are excited to welcome you to Brescia that (together with Bergamo) have been chosen as the 2023 Italian capitals of culture.
We wish you a very productive congress and a pleasant stay in Brescia!
Sincerely, the Stemnet President and the local organizing committee
