“It has been fantastic, the public is very curious and wants to know what we are doing…it has been a pleasure. People are really genuinely interested in what we can offer as a stem cell community ”. So explained researcher Susana Chuva de Sousa Lopez, Leiden University Medical Centre, following a lively public event in Stockholm at Karolinksa Institutet’s beautiful Aula Medica on the 23rd of June. The event involved stem cell researchers from all over Europe and the US and was held to mark the start of the ISSCR’s annual meeting in Stockholm (#ISSCR2015).
