The Mercia Stem Cell Alliance (MSCA) represents the interests of 14 universities from Oxford to Lancaster in embryonic and adult stem cell research, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine.  The MSCA is also pleased to have representation from key players in industry, which will facilitate our translational goals.  The MSCA annual meeting is an opportunity for networking and cross fertilisation across the wide range of disciplines that make up stem cell science.  The MSCA particularly welcomes young scientists, who have their own workshop on the first day of the annual meeting and are strongly encouraged to network and present posters and talks.
