Wednesday, October 3, 2012 marks Stem Cell Awareness Day, which brings together organizations and individuals around the world working to ensure that we realize the benefits of one of the most promising fields of science in our time. The day is a unique global opportunity to foster greater understanding about stem cell research and the range of potential applications for disease and injury.
For the millions of people around the world who suffer from incurable diseases and injury, Stem Cell Awareness Day is a day to celebrate the scientific advances made to-date and be hopeful of what is yet to come.
Research and academic institutions and educators are encouraged to participate by hosting public talks and other activities and events in their community. In particular, we encourage efforts to get stem cell researchers into high school classrooms that day.
