The Spring School 2016 has now come to an end.

It was a pleasure to welcome such a diverse group to the learnings of the Spring School - it has been a great success, and we will update this page soon with feedback from the participants.

We are happy to announce that based on the positive impact it has had, the ESGCT has pledged funding to secure the Spring School for 2017. Watch this space for news on location, date, and programme!

In the meantime you can view pictures of the event. Were you there and have yourself taken pictures? Please add them to the album!


ESGCT and DG-GT Spring School

The ESGCT will this year organise a spring school in partnership with the German Society for Gene and Cell Therapy (DG-GT e.V.) , German Center for Infection Research (DZIF) and Hannover Medical School (MHH) on April 20 to 22 at the Stephansstift in Hannover. The first Spring School of the ESGCT is supported by further national gene and cell therapy societies such as British Society for Gene and Cell Therapy.

As part of ESGCT's continuous aim to support young researchers, we have teamed up with above mentioned societies and institutions, who share this spirit, and have raised funds to allow students to take part to this Spring School for free. In addition the ESGCT offers all registering students free membership to the Society. When you register for student membership, please use voucher code Spring2016 at checkout. Once this is done you will be able to register to attend the Spring School.


We are looking forward to welcoming those registered to participate in an intensive three day training course with leading researchers from the field of Gene and Cell Therapy including potential internships, debates and networking with Europe's current and future leaders in the field. Have a look at the program.




There are a limited amount of beds available onsite at the Stephansstift. 

To book a room at the Stephansstift for the Wednesday and Thursday night, you can request to do so through our registration website (180 Euros for 2 nights including breakfast) and you will have to pay at check-out.  Please note there are only 50 rooms available.
