We are delighted to invite you to attend the Joint 10th Australasian Gene and Cell Therapy (AGCTS) and Australasian Society for Stem Cell Research (ASSCR) Scientific Meeting in Sydney NSW on the 24th to 26th May 2017

This conference brings together local, national and international experts, state government medical health and policy leaders, students and early career researchers in basic science, clinical research and clinical practice. 

Our members who share common interests in developing new stem cell, gene and cell therapies for the treatment of human disease and successfully translating their research into the clinic will be featured. With an exciting line up of world-class speakers, delegates from across Australasia with diverse scientific backgrounds who utilise stem cells and cell and gene therapy for a wide variety of applications, it’s bound to be both an inspiring and engaging meeting.
