SY-Stem - a symposium focusing on the next generation of stem cell researchers – is an annual meeting, located in the beautiful city of Vienna. It is organized jointly by the Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) and Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA).

In this two-and-a-half-day event, recognized keynote speakers, as well as aspiring young group leaders will discuss the latest advances in stem cell biology in an informal and collaborative setting. Our goal is to strengthen a cooperative and dynamic spirit in this research area.

The 2019 sessions include the following topics:

adult stem cells

germ lines & totipotency


pluripotency, differentiation & reprogramming

regeneration & ageing

We especially invite young scientists to participate in this symposium, to connect with and shape the future of the stem cell community in Europe.
