Educational Programs

The educational programs presented by the Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute will prepare the next generation of scientists by providing them with the fundamental concepts, knowledge, and laboratory/field techniques and skills of the life sciences. Our faculty and mentors are committed to deliver a creative and collaborative learning environment for the development and growth of all researchers. We are strongly connected to advancing experimental learning and building public understanding of the living world through educational outreach.

Our mission is to provide outstanding team-mentored training in basic biomedical and translational research to MD-scientists in order to provide them with the necessary skills to develop independent and productive academic careers in regenerative medicine. These future leaders of medicine will be well-equipped to develop new, more effective treatments for relevant diseases and other areas.

Applications are now closed.

Our mission is to provide a mechanism for postdoctoral trainees to mature into successful independent researchers. Postdocs at CIRM train in a highly collaborative environment, with labs that often work at the interface of regenerative medicine. Each postdoctoral fellow has the opportunity to acquire the diverse skills they need for an independent career in academia, biotech or beyond. The program provides each trainee with a mentoring committee, funds to attend conferences/courses and networking opportunities in the form of interactions with visiting scientists, national/international collaborations, journal clubs, research interest groups and annual retreats. Interested trainees will also be given opportunities to teach and mentor students as well as to improve grantsmanship.

Applications are now closed.

Our mission is to provide excellence in graduate education in the field of translational science and medicine through a combination of basic science education, innovative research training and clinical/professional immersion. The program combines relevant activities and interdisciplinary training during the first year of graduate school—wholly designed to equip students with a strong foundation and additional courses throughout the training are available, including stem cell biology, ethics, biomanufacturing and regenerative medicine.
