Stem Cell Institute 20th Anniversary

SCI anniversary banner

Help us celebrate 20 years of using stem cell biology to change the practice of medicine through discovery, education, and translation. Since our founding as the first interdisciplinary institute in the United States dedicated to stem cell research, the Stem Cell Institute has led numerous medical advances, including in cardiac, neurodegenerative, and blood disorders.  We will celebrate that history while rallying for the next 20 years with a virtual event on September 16th, 2020.

To celebrate the last 20 years, the Stem Cell Institute brought together stem cell scientists, state legislators, industry, and the Minnesota community to engage in a discussion of the current state-of-the-art stem cell biology and stem cell therapeutics.
