International Stem Cell Conference for Researchers Opens in San Francisco, June 16–19
Industry’s leading scientists to discuss latest advances and issues
The International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) prepares for the opening of what is considered the largest international conference specifically for stem cell professionals at the ISSCR 8th Annual Meeting to be held at Moscone West in San Francisco, CA USA, June 16 - 19, 2010, co-sponsored by California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM).
The ISSCR annual meeting has become the preeminent meeting for stem cell researchers to present and discuss advancements in the field with the ultimate goal of bringing therapeutic treatment ever closer to patients. With 108 presenters and more than 1,350 scientific posters, the meeting provides an opportunity for researchers to view, discuss, collaborate and further their own stem cell research in this rapidly-evolving field.
This year is expected to break attendance records again with more than 3,500 of the leading stem cell professionals from public, private, academic and government settings from 48 countries. It provides a forum to promote and foster the exchange of research, featuring leading discoveries of the year, and serving as a catalyst for inspired stem cell research around the world.
The International Society for Stem Cell Research (www.isscr.org) is an independent, nonprofit membership organization established to promote and foster the exchange and dissemination of information and ideas relating to stem cells, to encourage the general field of research involving stem cells and to promote professional and public education in all areas of stem cell research and application.

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.
Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...
Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.
Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...
Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.
As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.
With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
