The second Autostem plenary meeting was held in Aachen on 27 and 28 June 2016. The meeting was very productive. Each WP leader presented on progress in their WP to date, aswell as plans for the coming months. There were detailed discussions in particular on fine-tuning design for the Autostem pipeline. The session on day 1 was followed with a tour of the IPT Franuhofer facility, including the Stemcell Factory. Plans were laid for intensive collaboration on design over the coming months. Many thanks to the team at Fraunhofer IPT for hosting such a successful meeting.
