The monthly Stem Cell Seminar Series brings scientists from all over the world to the forefront of regenerative medicine and emphasizes the basic research and translational themes of stem cell research.

These seminars provide an opportunity for the “Mesa” community to learn about the work being done by prestigious researchers from other institutions, preview unpublished scientific results, initiate collaborations and build networks. The speakers invited provide novel insights into stem cell functions, tissue development, and cell-based approaches for the treatment of diseases.
The Stem Cell Program was founded on the unique strengths of the UC San Diego research community, with its unparalleled cross-disciplinary collaborations and strong basic and comparative biomedical science programs.
The University of California, San Diego Stem Cell Seminar Series is intended to stimulate the exchange of experience with researchers outside of UC San Diego, enhance interactions with sister institutions and biomedical campuses, and promote education in stem cell research.


We strive to promote unparalleled cross-disciplinary collaborations and strong basic and comparative biomedical science programs and support development of essential core facilities and facilitate training and educational activities.


These goals are accomplished through presentations by distinguished invited speakers from various avenues of stem cell research and by poster presentations by graduate students and post-docs.
