Dear All Members of Stem Cell Symposium,
We are pleased to announce that the 16th Stem Cell Research Symposium (SCRS) will be held from June 1st (Friday) to June 2nd (Saturday), 2018, at Centennial Hall Kyushu University School of Medicine, in Fukuoka. Now, we start accepting abstracts and release the registration form.
Our symposium initiated the meeting of hematology and then
we have continued and expanded discussions about a variety of subjects,
including tissue stem cells, cancer stem cells, multi-/pluri-potent stem
cells and so on. It contributed to establishing an intimate relationship
among stem cell biological field community and worked club-like meeting.
However, although the studies of stem cell biology have considerably changed
nowadays, our meeting stayed unchanged. So now we have strived to achieve
reconstruction of the research networks on stem cell biology so that we
have an opportunity to exchange ideas, perspectives or approaches. Thus,
we will ask for speakers who are actively working on wide variety of studies
and also invite speakers for Keynote lectures on the subject of stem cell
aging, epigenome in germ cells, and cell competition. At this time, we
share the meeting of scientific research on innovative areas as well, which
addresses "Establishing a new paradigm of the pathogenesis of diseases
through the understanding of stem cell aging." presented by Professor
Atsushi Iwama, Chiba University. The meeting will be held at the school
of medicine, Kyushu University in the afternoon, May 31.
We look forward to sharing valuable and fascinating symposium, and we hope everyone will come and join us.

We have constituted the program organizing committee which experts from a wide variety of research fields come together. The sessions will be composed of committee members recommend and public proposal. We encourage everyone to submit a presentation proposal. Also, we suggest young colleagues attend and present your studies at "Tsukushi Kai," which exchange profound discussion among young researchers.
