Center Activities

Fellows Program

Stem Cell Ethics Center forges collaborations across the University in order to bring multiple disciplines together to study the broad societal meanings and implications of stem cell research and clinical translation. Through the Ethics Center's Fellows Program, scholars are brought together from a variety of disciplines and professional schools throughout the University, including: law; humanities; social sciences; business; engineering; medicine. Monthly Fellows seminars provide a multidisciplinary learning environment for humanities and professional school faculty, stem cell scientists, post docs, and selected others.
