Hydra XII is the European Summer School on Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine taking place in Hydra (Greece), from 11-18 September 2016. This Summer School will provide intensive training on fundamental concepts and contemporary issues in stem cell biology. Leading experts will give an in-depth, week-long programme of lectures, workshops and discussion groups. Alexander Ross (University of Cambridge) and Laween Meran (Francis Crick Institute) will be attending this event as delegates of INTENS. More information on Hydra XII can be found here
The first meeting of the INTENS consortium took place at the Institute of Child Health (ICH-UCL) in London, on 9 March 2016. The meeting gathered representatives from all organisations participating in the project. It was a great opportunity to get to know each other better and set the direction of the different WPs during the first months.
