Dear Colleagues,

the DFG Priority Programme SPP1356 – Pluripotency and Cellular Reprogramming welcomes you to the International Symposium ”Reprogrammed Stem Cells“ in Berlin from March 20 – 22, 2014.

At the end of the funding period of the SPP1356 the symposium is intended to bring together German and international colleagues to discuss the molecular concepts of pluripotency and directed reprogramming.
The symposium will represent the current state of the ES cell and reprogramming field and provides a platform for interdisciplinary discussion of new concepts and technologies.

Starting with a public keynote presentation on the opening day we will have two more days of scientific presentation and exchange.

Speaking time is assigned as follows (speaking + discussion time):

Invited talks:         25 + 5 min.
Contributed talks: 10 + 5 min.

Poster sessions are scheduled during lunch breaks.

This symposium is a joint enterprise of the SPP1356, the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BBAW) and the ELSA Research Project (BMBF) „Developmental Totipotency“. The latter covers ethical and legal aspects of totipotency and cellular reprogramming in a concurrent session on Friday, March 21st., 2014 (

We wish you an interesting and exiting conference as well as an enjoyable stay in Berlin!
