11-14 July 2010, Dresden, Germany.
3rd International Congress on Stem Cells and Tissue Formation will focus on stem cells including their niches, reprogramming and the formation of tissues of multiple organs, such as the CNS, pancreas, skin, heart and the hematopoietic system. In addition, specifically will be addressed systems biology, biomaterials research (the Max Bergmann Symposium 2010 will be part of the conference, emphasizing biomaterials for stem cell engineering), clinical developments in the area of regenerative medicine and cell-based therapies.

This congress is organized every second year by the Dresden stem cell community, which includes the DFG-Research Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD) and the Collaborative Research Center (SFB 655) "Cells into Tissues".
