Last year, Stem Cell Awareness Day brought 31 events in four U.S. states and seven countries. Those events ranged from public lectures to opportunities for people to tour stem cell labs and meet some of the patients who could benefit from stem cell research.
Each year CIRM also encourages stem cell scientists to visit high school classes and talk about their research. Last year, scientists spoke with more than 1,000 students throughout California.
We’ll be updating the Events section of the Stem Cell Awareness Day website as we learn about events being hosted throughout California or in other states or countries. If you don’t see events at an institution near you, we encourage you to contact the institution and let them know that you’d like to attend a public lecture. Better yet, offer to help put something together or ask a researcher to visit your patient advocacy group.
Researchers who are interested in visiting classrooms or participating in public events should contact Don Gibbons email@example.com.
We have more information on our website about how you can get involved in stem cell awareness throughout the year. That information is on our Get Involved page.
