The program's mission is to provide an environment that will promote the use of stem cells in the study of cell biology, developmental biology, and disease. To achieve this mission the program provides the infrastructure and expertise to help investigators integrate the culture and differentiation of embryonic stem cells into their research programs. Moreover, the program is actively involved in recruiting stem cell researchers to the Medical College of Wisconsin whose programs have the potential to complement and extend existing research endeavors. The program also administers a forum for investigators whose focus is developmental biology and/or stem cell research. This weekly forum allows them to promote, share, and discuss cutting-edge unpublished findings amongst their colleagues. The program also invites renowned stem cell biologists to present their research to the Medical College of Wisconsin community on a regular basis. Finally the program is actively participating in the teaching mission of the Medical College of Wisconsin by providing an advanced Graduate level course in Developmental and Stem Cell Biology as well as presenting individual seminars in various medical student courses.
