The ISSCR is an international, nonprofit organization which serves as the leading scientific association in the field of stem cell research. Established in 2002, the ISSCR has recently relocated its north shore headquarters in a self-managed capacity. Its signature Annual Meeting attracts upwards of 4,000 attendees each year and rotates globally. The meeting’s scientific program includes talks and poster sessions chosen from over 2000 scientific summaries (“abstracts”) submitted for review. The ISSCR’s Regional Conferences expand the global reach and breadth of educational programming, currently delivering two smaller meetings per year. Additionally, the society’s online education portal “ISSCR Connect” facilitates peer-to-peer networking and online learning.
