Are you a UW-Madison faculty or staff member, or a student interested in stem cell and regenerative medicine research?

If so, the SCRMC is your central point of contact for information and education, faculty interaction, and facilitation for research and clinical development in the field.


Operating under the School of Medicine and Public Health and the Graduate School, our center's goals are to:

  • Maintain UW-Madison as leader in stem cell and regenerative medicine research and application.
  • Foster increased communication about the field within campus and beyond.
  • Support basic and translational research, clinical application, and sound bioethics and public policy decisions.
  • Develop education, training and outreach programs.
  • Enhance philanthropic support. 

Did you know?
More than 200 UW-Madison 
Ph.D. students are working in 
SCRMC member labs!

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a leader in stem cell and regenerative medicine research, with many landmark discoveries including the first successful isolation and culture of pluripotent stem cells in 1998 by James Thomson and colleagues.

As you can read in our 
SCRMC 2014 Update, we are working hard to uncover fundamental processes of diseases and advance better treatments.

Won't you join us in our important mission? Thank you for reading and for your support!
