Stem cell research in Israel
The Israel Stem Cell Society (ISCS) is a professional, non-profit organization, whose aim is to promote the exchange of data on stem cell research and regenerative medicine in Israel. ISCS bring together researchers, clinicians, health professionals, and industry representatives. In addition, it hosts, organizes and links academic activities nationwide, promoting ties with international societies, as well as increasing awareness of the need to support stem cell research in Israel. In order to achieve these goals:
1. The ISCS will organize regular meetings on scientific/clinical and technical aspects of stem cell research.
2. The ISCS will hold annual international stem cell conferences and annual young investigator seminars, covering a wide range of stem cell-related topics.
3. The ISCS will launch a website to promote networking among local and international researchers in the field.
