The ASSCR supports stem cell research and encourages scientific exchange, particularly through our annual conference, in order to build an active stem cell research community in Australia and New Zealand.

We also aim to provide all interested parties with the opportunity to access information relating to scientific, medical and ethical advances in the broad field of stem cell research.


The ASSCR Webpage

The ASSCR webpage is for all ASSCR members and anyone looking to understand stem cell research and cell therapies. We hope this site will be an interactive and informative space.

We also welcome members to submit stem cell articles, news, images, and cartoons. If you have other ideas for the website or would like to contribute news or articles, email our Communications Chair, Dr Kathryn Futrega at k.futrega@qut.edu.au also please see our Contact Us page.
