About the Program

Funded by a 3 million dollar grant through the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine, our two-step program is designed to train students for careers in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine.

HSU-CIRM 2.0 Bridges Scholars

HSU-CIRM Scholars participate in a 12 month, research intensive internship either at the Stanford University Center for Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research and Education, the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Institute for Regenerative Medicine, the University of California, Davis Stem Cell Program or The Jeanne Loring Lab at the Center for Regenerative Medicine at the Scripps Research Institute.

Students selected to participate will identify five potential host laboratories at each institution. These laboratories will be provided with a cover letter and CV from the applicant. Only students formally invited to work in a laboratory by the principle investigator will participate in the program.
