SCRMC Fall Conference
OVERVIEW: This Conference is organized by the trainees of the SCRMC . The SCRMC Research Training Awards were established in 2008 to recognize and provide support for promising graduate students and postdoctoral fellows conducting stem cell and regenerative medicine research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The SCRMC Research Training Awards Program provides unique, interdisciplinary training for future leaders in stem cell and regenerative medicine research. Starting in 2011, the SCRMC asked the recipients of this award to organize this meeting aimed at postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, primarily.

National & International Meeting Participation
The World Stem Cell Summit is a project of the nonprofit Regenerative Medicine Foundation. Since 2003, Regenerative Medicine Foundation has built the strongest, most comprehensive and trusted global network for Regenerative Medicine, uniting the world’s leading researchers, medical centers, universities, labs, businesses, funders, policymakers, experts in law, regulation and ethics, medical philanthropies and patient organizations.
In 2008, Summit was held at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison and co-hosted by the UW-Madison Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center (SCRMC) and the WiCell Research Institute.
