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 40 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

  • The next Stem Cell Retreat will be held at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology on Thursday, May 12, 2016. The keynote speaker will be Dr. Peter Zandstra from the University of Toronto.
  • BME 6110 - Stem Cell Bioengineering, is a new graduate-level course that explores the interface of stem cell biology, bioengineering, and biotechnology. Click here for the full list of courses featuring stem cell biology at Cornell.
  • A post-doctoral position is available in the laboratory of Tudorita (Doina) Tumbar, at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. It will start (preferentially) around January/February 2016. 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 Aiko Sada Nishimura (Tumbar Lab), Tim Pierpont (Weiss Lab), and Priti Singh (Schimenti Lab) the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners of the 2015 Stem Cell Symposium poster competition!

Congratulations to Drs. Sylvia Lee and Minglin Ma! Their seed grant proposals have been selected for funding by the Cornell Stem Cell Program. The funding period is June 1, 2015 through May 31, 2016.
