hESC Research: Getting Started

Step by step instructions for investigators who would like to use hESC at Yale.


The Yale Stem Cell Center is directed by Dr. Haifan Lin. The Center provides resources and serves as a nexus for activities for the over 87 laboratories at Yale that perform stem cell research.


Members of the Yale Stem Cell Center represent an interdepartmental group of basic scientists and physician-scientists.

Yale Stem Cell Interest Group

The Yale Stem Cell Interest Group (YSCIG) is the first student-faculty organization at the University to focus on the burgeoning application of stem cells to biology and medicine, as well as its non-scientific implications.

Stem Cell Research Forum

The Stem Cell Research Forum meets on the first Thursday of each month at 12:00 noon in Amistad 112.  Food and beverages are provided and the atmosphere is intended to be informal.
