The International Conference on Cell Reprogramming and Reproduction

Welcome to the international conference on Cell Reprogramming and Reproductive Biotechnology. This conference will be hosted by Cellular Reprogramming Laboratory – International University – VNH.HCMC from June 27-29, 2018. We will have a session for the demonstration of ICSI, SCNT, embryo fusion, and transgenic technique on June 29, 2018, from 15:30-17:30 at Cellular Reprogramming Laboratory. Welcome to all researchers, graduate students, and undergraduate students interested in the field of cell reprogramming and reproductive biotechnology, transgenic animals, stem cells, epigenetic & genomic reprogramming and germ cells (free of charge).
