Training and Outreach

Public Outreach - "Sharing in the Discovery"

The Stem Cell Learning Lab is an outreach partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Madison Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center, Wisconsin National Primate Research Center, UW-Madison Biotechnology Center, Morgridge Outreach Experiences and many bright UW-Madison students who assist with stem cell outreach efforts.  The Stem Cell Learning Lab was made possible through a grant from the Ira and Ineva Reilly Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Endowment and has reached thousands of learners in Wisconsin and beyond since 2009.

Available to community and school groups third grade and up, the Stem Cell Learning Lab is among the very few in the country and continues to place Madison at the forefront of stem cell research education and science education.  

Through this hands-on experience, participants learn about things such as preparing and growing stem cells, and also have a chance to view stem cells under the microscope. The program uses the same equipment and methods stem cell researchers use, which offers participants a rare glimpse into real-world research.

Contact Jordana Lenon for more information and to schedule a visit to the Stem Cell Learning Lab. Visit the UW-Madison Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center website for additional stem cell education resources.  

Stem Cell Training Courses

As a nonprofit research institute, WiCell has consistently worked to advance stem cell technology through research, education and technical support for the scientific community. WiCell established the first comprehensive training program for human embryonic stem (hES) cells that provided instruction to more than 800 scientists from around the globe during its tenure (2003-2012).

Information about current options for training is available from the International Society for Stem Cell Research or by emailing [email protected].
