4th International Congress on Stem Cells and Tissue Formation: "Quantitative stem cell biology – from models to applications"
This conference brought together experimentalists and clinicians with theoreticians to discuss latest experimental/clinical results, new theoretical concepts, and innovative technologies with an aim to foster a truly interdisciplinary, open-minded exchange of ideas.
Discussion themes included:
-  stem cell heterogeneity
-  stem cell fate decisions
-  stem cells in regeneration & development            
-  stem cells in disease & treatment
-  stem cell related bioengineering & biomaterial
-  theoretical stem cell biology
-  mathematical modelling
with a focus (but no restriction) on neural stem cells, hematopoietic stem cells and diabetes.

EMBO Conference - Advances in Stem Cell Research: Development, Regeneration and Disease
The 3rd event in this EMBO Conference Series on Stem Cells. The aim of this meeting is to bring together researchers with expertise on stem cell biology in Development, Regeneration and Disease.
This should be an opportune moment to discuss work in these areas with researchers who can share their experiences with different tissue systems, both at the basic and translational level. Visit for more details.
Organisers: Shahragim Tajbakhsh, Margaret Buckingham, Giulio Cossu.
April 6th 2011 - April 8th 2011

Workshop in Computational Approaches to Stem Cell Biology II
Ingo Roeder and Ingmar Glauche organised this two-day training workshop on Computational Biology. The workshop intended to serve as a tutorial about mathematical and bioinformatics approaches in current stem cell biology. The objective of the workshop was to enable participants to understand and interpret modelling results (e.g. in the literature), not to become modellers themselves.
December 2nd 2010 - December 3rd 2010

Hydra VI 2010: European Summer School on Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine
From 11th to 18th September 2010, 54 young scientists came together with 24 leading stem cell experts for a unique training experience. Students from 13 countries attended the Summer School, made possible by the collaboration of three EU-funded stem cell research projects – EuroSyStem, OptiStem and NeuroStemCell.  
Now in its 6th highly successful year, the European Summer School covers fundamental concepts and examines issues in the field today, from the molecular circuitry that governs the behaviour of stem cells, to breaking therapies. The Summer School combines lectures, workshops and poster sessions with valuable opportunities for students to discuss and debate ideas directly with experts on the faculty. It was an intense week of learning and development that left students enthused and inspired:
“Thank you for organising this great, exciting and inspiring summer school”
 “I really appreciated the amazingly high quality of the speakers, of the discussions, as well as of the delegates, and I am really excited by the new interactions I could establish during my stay in Hydra.”
“It was a very good experience which broadened my knowledge and vision".
