CANCELED: Symposium canceled due to the current COVID-19 situation.

Statement from the organizers:

"Over the last week, the symposium organizers were monitoring the current situation of COVID-19 in Europe very closely and after much deliberation with the IMBA and IMP safety board we now regrettably came to the decision to cancel the 2020 SY-Stem Symposium without a replacement date.

Please note that even though there are not yet any regulatory restrictions from the Austrian Government, we have taken this measure to ensure the safety and reduce the risk for all participants and all people working on our campus.


We were very much looking forward to exciting talks and discussions and we are sincerely sorry for all of the inconveniences caused by this decision and would be grateful for your cooperation and understanding."

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. The goal is to strengthen a cooperative and dynamic spirit in this research area.

The 2020 sessions include the following topics:



Especially young scientists are invited to participate in this symposium, to connect with and shape the future of the stem cell community in Europe.
