Education and Training

Seminars and Symposia

In keeping with its commitment to promote a broad understanding of issues and opportunities in stem cell research, the Tri-SCI sponsors scientific seminars and symposia as well as other events geared to the public at large. The latter will play an important part in the Tri-SCI’s outreach effort, helping to generate increased public awareness of stem cell research and providing information of interest to the general community.

Fellowship Opportunities

Tri-I Starr Stem Cell Scholars Fellowship Program
Stem cell research will require the institutions to make a long-term investment in training future generations of scientists to conduct research in this highly complex, multidisciplinary field. The Tri-I Starr Stem Cell Scholars Fellowship Program plans to provide fellowship support to outstanding candidates pursuing advanced stem cell research in any of the three institutions’ laboratories The ability to offer such assistance will encourage the very best young investigators to take part in the initiative. Receiving a Tri-I Starr Stem Cell Scholars Fellowship constitutes a mark of scientific distinction and reflects a strong commitment to upholding the highest standards of responsibility and excellence.

Applications for these Awards will be evaluated by a group of internal faculty at each institution, chosen by the senior leadership. The awards will provide support for stipends, travel allowance and funds for laboratory expenditures.

A call for applications will be posted on the Tri-Institutional stem cell intranet website (www.trisci.org).

Graduate Training

The Tri-SCI does not offer a separate graduate program. Instead, students should apply to one of the existing programs at the Tri-Institutions. Once accepted, students can then conduct their graduate research in a lab of an investigators whose research is focused on stem cell science.

Tri-SCI Intranet

The Tri-SCI intranet is a very useful resource for investigators conducting stem cell research at the Tri-Institutions. It contains important information about the role of the Tri-SCI Embryonic Stem Cell Research Oversight Committee (ESCRO) and is the site for the required tutorial and posttest that must be completed by all investigators and their laboratory staff who are conducting research with human embryonic stem cells. Faculty and staff on the Tri-I campuses should visit the site at www.trisci.org.
