Title:The German stem cell network GSCN - a nationwide network with many tasks
Creators Name:Mahler, S. and Besser, D.
Abstract:The German Stem Cell Network (GSCN) aims at creating synergies between all areas of basic and applied stem cell research and to provide an interface between science, education, politics and society as a whole. The central task of the GSCN is to pool the expertise in stem cell research in Germany and develop synergies between basic research, regenerative medicine and pharmacology. The initiative promotes innovative research activities on a national and international level. In addition, targeted information and events are offered to encourage the public discourse on stem cell research. The objectives of the network are: To maintain an organizational structure for a German network for basic and applied stem cell research; To organize joint annual conferences on stem cell research to be rotated among German cities; To coordinate scientific and strategic working groups; To provide a platform for communication on stem cell research, enabling exchange of important news, discussions and networking between scientists, institutions, policy-makers and the general public (in German and English); To publish documents about basic and applied stem cell research in Germany and help to organize public meetings and outreach programs on these topics.
