The Cornell Stem Cell Program was founded on the unique strengths of the Cornell research community with its unparalleled cross-disciplinary collaborations and strong basic and comparative biomedical science programs. The CSCP incorporates over 50 laboratories across Cornell University Ithaca campus, closely interacts with the Center for Vertebrate Genomics, and is supported, in part, by the NYSTEM program of the New York State Department of Health.

News and announcements

  • Registration is now closed for the 6th Stem Cell Symposium which will be held on Monday, July 31, 2017.
  • Cornell has been awarded NYSTEM Research Experience for Teachers (RET) funding. The program supports local teachers to work in faculty labs for 8 weeks in the summer to develop stem cell-related curricula that will then be used in their classrooms. For more info or to apply, please click here.
  • A post-doctoral position is available in the laboratory of Tudorita (Doina) Tumbar at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. Experience with tissue stem cell biology, mouse genetics, and cell culture are a plus, but are not required. If you are interested, please contact Dr. Tumbar at or click here for additional information.

Congratulations to Drs. Andrew White and Claudia Fischbach in collaboration with Ben Cosgrove! Their seed grant proposals have been selected for funding by the Cornell Stem Cell Program. The funding period is April 1, 2017 through March 31, 2018.

Congratulations to Alex Wang (Tumbar Lab), Dah-Jiun Fu (Nikitin Lab), Rebecca Harman (Van de Walle Lab), and Lu Ling (Fischbach Lab), winners of the 2016 Stem Cell Retreat poster competition!
