What do you know about stem cells? How do you feel about stem cell research? Are you optimistic that stem cell research will lead to significant medical and scientific advances?

At the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute, we believe that it is important for everybody to have access to the latest, world-leading research about stem cells. 

We aim to raise awareness about what we do and to help members of the public to make informed judgements and decisions about it. 

It helps that we love talking about stem cell biology! Our Public Engagement team organise activities throughout the year. This allows us to meet all sorts of curious non-scientists and start conversations about the mysteries and discoveries that motivate us every day.

  • You may be able to join us at one of our upcoming events. Head to what's on.
  • Talk to us about arranging a new event or activity about stem cells by contacting our . 

The stem cell research field is extensive and rapidly evolving. For non-specialists, it can be tricky to stay up-to-date with the latest developments and to sort fact from fiction. Using the tabs, you can find links to our recommended and verified sources of information. 

If you are interested in a specific area of our work, a good place to start is our research groups.
