International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR)

With roughly 4,000 members from more than 60 countries, the ISSCR is the preeminent global, cross-disciplinary, science-based organization dedicated to stem cell research and its translation to the clinic.

Formed in 2002, the Society promotes global collaboration among the world’s most talented and committed stem cell scientists and physicians, and plays a catalyzing role in the development of effective new medical treatments.

Support Across the Breadth of the Field

The Society brings together researchers, clinicians, academics, and industry representatives engaged in both fundamental and applied research, and provides international opportunities to share science and advance the field. The ISSCR supports the strong scientific and medical consensus that continued research on all types of stem cells is critical to developing research strategies that will ultimately provide new therapies for patients with debilitating diseases and injuries.

The ISSCR represents academia and industry on a broad range of issues that affect the well-being of patients and their families, and strives to educate the public and government regulators on the basic principles of stem cell science and the realistic potential for new medical treatments and cures.
