Welcome to Lausanne! Book your hotel here!

The 26th Annual Congress of the ESGCT will take place in Lausanne, Switzerland, at the SwissTech Convention Center, in collaboration with the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR), the French Society for Gene and Cell Therapy (SFTCG) and Local Organisers in Switzerland. 

Lausanne, the second-largest city on Lake Geneva, combines a dynamic commercial town with the locality of a holiday resort. The capital of the canton of Vaud is also a lively university and convention town. Sports and culture are given a high profile in the Olympic capital. The town is built on three hills, surrounded by vineyard-covered slopes, with Lake Geneva at its feet. Rising impressively from the opposing French lakeshore are the Savoy Alps. The attractive old town is largely car-free. Small alleyways with cafes and boutiques shape the streetscape in the medieval city centre.
