The Swiss Stem Cell Foundation is convinced that only by maintaining high educational and research standards will it succeed in becoming a reliable and constructive partner in the life sciences arena and, in particular, for applied research projects on stem cells.

The collaboration with the University of Insubria (Varese), the Politecnico di Torino (Torino) and the Ècole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Lausanne in the training of postgraduates and the implementation of research doctorate programmes in biology, as well as postdoctoral education, has been operative for a number of years in this sector – we have been, and still are, a reliable partner that has already trained approximately ten students doing their specialization, PhD students or internships.

The Foundation is currently involved in the education of middle and higher secondary schools, making available equipment for high school seniors (LAM) and organizing open days for students who must decide on their professional future.
