From Your Regional Leadership

Welcome to the Australian & New Zealand region of ISCT!

It is such an exciting time to be part of the global field of cellular and gene therapies. One of the things I value most about ISCT is the fact that this is a Society for everyone, bringing together research scientists, technologists, clinicians, regulatory affairs and industry partners, all with the common goal of providing worlds’ best therapies for patients. It is a Society that aims to educate, collaborate, translate research to therapies and foster the development of students and early stage professionals. The ANZ region of ISCT is comprised of members who are energetic, enthused and engaged. In mid-November 2018 the ISCT ANZ Regional Meeting will be held in Sydney, show-casing local and international progress in “Next Generation Cell and Gene Therapies”. This will also provide an opportunity to liaise with TGA and industry.

We are thrilled that the Antipodeans will once again host the ISCT Annual Meeting, this time in Melbourne, my home town, from the 29th May – 1st June, 2019. This will be a great opportunity for the whole of the ANZ region to come together and interact with our Asian-Pacific neighbours, along with colleagues and friends from all over the world. So get online now and register at www.isct2019.com!

It is a privilege to serve the region in my role as Regional VP. I am supported by an experienced and wonderful regional executive team. Together we are here to serve the local members of the Society, so please feel free to contact us at any time and let us know what we can do for you, and what support is needed to improve cell and gene therapies throughout Australia and New Zealand.

See you in Melbourne!

ASSCR-AGCTS-ISCT ANZ
2019 Joint Scientific Meeting

“From Stem Cells to Genes to Therapies”

November 13-15, 2019

Brisbane, Australia  

 

On behalf of the Australasian Society for Stem Cell Research (ASSCR), the Australasian Gene and Cell Therapy Society (ACGTS) and the International Society for Cell and Gene Therapy (ISCGT), as well as the local organising committees, it is our great pleasure to welcome you to ASSCR-AGCTS-ISCGT 2019 Annual Scientific Meetings to be held in Brisbane from Wednesday 13 to Friday 15 November.

This Conference will highlight how stem cells and gene therapies can be used to understand development, create disease models and develop new treatments.

These areas dovetail with new advances in cellular therapies and regenerative medicine, and how these technologies are moving into the clinic.

Complementing the idea of cell replacement, the conference will address advances in gene therapies, spanning work from vector development to clinical trials.

We look forward to welcoming you to Brisbane!
