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 30 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.

- We are pleased to announce the launch of the new Stem Cells & Cancer Journal Club. This journal club will include aspects of basic cell and developmental stem cell biology (using all model organisms), cancer, and the connection of stem cells with cancer and aging. The first meeting will be held on Thursday, December 19, 12-1:30PM in Biotech Racker Room (G01). Lunch will be provided.
- Congratulations to newly hired Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior, Dr. Melissa Warden!
