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?

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.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. 

Our Public Engagement team organise activities throughout the year to share their passion for stem cell biology. The team are eager to meet any curious non-scientists and start conversations about the mysteries and discoveries that motivate us every day.
