Stowers Research Conferences are biennial meetings that employ an innovative trainee-centered approach to inspire creative thought and collaboration in the biological sciences.

Drawing on a diversity of experimental systems, the 2023 Stem and Regenerative Biology meeting will feature a broad range of perspectives on stem cell dynamics in development, homeostasis, and regeneration. We are excited to bring together thought leaders in this fascinating area of research to share new ideas, discover common themes, and forge new relationships.

Stowers Institute

Our 10-acre campus is situated in the heart of Kansas City. Located next to the University of Missouri-Kansas City and The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, our members are part of an academic neighborhood. You can immerse yourself in the arts, visit landmarks such as the Linda Hall Scientific Research Library, and find inspiration to fuel creative thinking.

At the Stowers Institute you are also within walking distance to Loose Park, the Trolley Trail, the Brookside Neighborhood, and the Country Club Plaza. You have convenient access to some of the best coffee shops, restaurants, and shopping the city has to offer.

Kansas City, Missouri

Kansas City may be located in the heart of the country, but it’s certainly not flyover country. Known fondly as the “City of Fountains” and “The Paris of the Plains,” you’ll fall in love with Kansas City’s unique architecture, stunning beauty, and dynamic culture. Thanks to explosive growth in the past decade and a strong sense of Midwest pride, more than 2 million people call Greater Kansas City home, making it one of the top 30 most populated metros in the U.S., situated conveniently between both coasts.
