Upcoming WiSCR Meetings:

WiSCR holds monthly meetings during which we either discuss current stem cell literature or have a member present their research. WiSCR also organizes and participates in various science outreach events in order to engage and educate both children and adults in Wisconsin about stem cell research.

There are no upcoming events at this time.

Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF)

WiSCR also administers the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program, which aims to introduce talented undergraduate students to stem cell research with the help of a graduate student or postdoc mentor.
