GSCN school material: "Understanding Stem Cells - The conference for schools"

The GSCN and the Schering Stiftung developed new material about stem cells for high schools in German. The four units á 90 minutes cover the topics "Basics, Ethics, Therapies, Genetics" and offer an insight into the wide area of stem cells and related fields. Teachers find a didactic concept based on elements of a scientific conference - students slip into the role of scientists and give key lectures, present posters and discuss on panels about all kind of aspects about stem cells. Please take a look

Analogue & digital exhibition

Stem cells: cells for life – 10 posters (in German and in English) to download

The GSCN has developed an exhibition for institutes, universities and teachers - 10 posters on topics of current stem cell research like diabetes, organoids, skin, ethics and many more. Each poster is accompanied by a website with videos, factsheets and an interactive quiz to deepen the information.
The highlight: The posters are available as DINA 0 format on the GSCN website - anyone can download them, print them out as posters or roll-ups - and immediately has a complete, analogue and digitally enhanced, exhibition on stem cells, research and application at hand.

The English posters can be downloaded as print version here.

UniStem Day

Upcoming UniStem Day - save the date:

11 March 2022


The UniStem Day is a Europe wide education day for highschool students. 

In 2019, more than 1300 students gathered in 15 cities and numerous universities and research institutions in Germany to dedicate an entire day to stem cell research! UniStem Day 2019 took place for the fourth time in Germany - and for the first time worldwide with Columbia, Singapore and Australia. Another highlight: More and more countries took part in the Stem Cell Education Day  - Germany, Austria, France, Greece, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain and Sweden took part.

In 2020, the UniStem Day was severely influenced by the Corona pandemic, many events were cancelled, some were reduced in program and number of paticipants. 

In 2021 - all events in Germany took place online and it was a huge success, because a lot of the students really enjoyed listening and talking to "real" scientists. 

UniStem Day 2020 - europäischer Stammzelltag



Let's look forward to 2022 and hope that the pandemic will be under control and minimized - we would love to organize real events for the UniStem Day 2022.
