Virtual Symposium

We were hoping to be able to welcome everybody in person in Vienna for the 2021 symposium. However, given the uncertain coronavirus situation, we have decided to host the SY-Stem Symposium online.


We will regularly update this website with new details on speakers, registration, poster sessions, sponsors and networking opportunities.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

SY-Stem - a symposium focusing on the next generation of stem cell researchers – is an annual meeting, located in the beautiful city of Vienna. It is organized jointly by the Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) and Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA).

In this two-and-a-half-day event, recognized keynote speakers, as well as aspiring young group leaders will discuss the latest advances in stem cell biology in an informal and collaborative setting. Our goal is to strengthen a cooperative and dynamic spirit in this research area.

For 2021 we will recreate the 2020 sessions and include the following topics:

Pluripotency, early development & gastrulation




We especially invite young scientists to participate in this symposium, to connect with and shape the future of the stem cell community in Europe.
