MosaCell 3rd annual meeting

On May 7th,  we will have the 3rd edition of the annual MosaCell symposium! 

MosaCell is an initiative to support research on patient-derived cells for disease modeling and therapy at the MUMC+. At the symposium, we will have lectures from internationally renowned keynote speakers and presentations of MUMC+ researchers on the use of MSCs and iPSCs for disease modeling, organoids, and CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing. There will also be a competition for the best pitch and best poster presentation, so PhD students and post-docs: send your 200-word abstract before April 25th to:

Registration (BOOK NOW on the right) is free, but mandatory and limited to 75 participants.
