About ISCBI

The ISCBI membership includes more than 200 stem cell scientists and other experts from stem cell banks, stem cell societies, academia, industry and regulatory bodies, from 23 countries. It is managed by the ISCBI Executive Board. 

 

ISCBI has a Steering Group which advises the ISCBI Executive Board and drives the organisation of annual meetings and workshops. The international Steering Group is comprised of leading experts in stem cell banking and its membership was most recently updated in November 2020 (see below).

 

The ISCBI is an open community and welcomes new-comers interested in establishing and developing stem cell resources for local, national and international use.

ETHOS

The guiding principles for the development of ISCBI have been

  • Diversity:

    • To bring together stem cell biobanks supporting diverse applications

    • To engage diverse expertise and knowledge: stem cell biobanks, leading stem cell research groups, scientific societies, regulators, industry, funders and policy groups

  • Inclusivity:

    • Promoting equal access to meetings to all stakeholders and countries

    • Assuring that every country has a voice.
