Engaging the community
As part of an institution of higher learning, ISCRM sees its role as not only teaching and training the next generation of stem cell scientists, but also educating the public about stem cells, their use in research, and their enormous potential to revolutionize medicine. ISCRM faculty, staff, and trainees participate in regular outreach activities through the year to teach about stem cells and regenerative technologies, and to share their knowledge and excitement about the groundbreaking research projects taking place at the Institute.
Scientists are involved in dozens of activities a year. These include visits to schools and educational programs for students, tours of our facilities, legislative visits, and public forums.
