Stem Cell Education Society (SCES) is a Rutgers

The Stem Cell Education Society (SCES) is a Rutgers student-run network dedicated to educating students, scientists, medical professionals, and the general public to promote an understanding and acceptance of emerging technologies with stem cells. Together, SCES aims to eliminate misconceptions about all stem cells without bias. The emergence of stem cell therapies around the world in almost all subspecialties of medicine makes it critical to increase the awareness of stem cells and their behavior within different microenvironment. SCES is not an advocacy group for any particular stem cells. Rather, we present the facts per peer-reviewed articles.

SCES works to achieve its goals in two ways:

  1. By engaging the public at all age levels to provide them with accurate knowledge regarding stem cells at various community gatherings (i.e. church groups, summer camps, and schools)
  2. By hosting bone marrow registration drives on campus and throughout North Jersey to enhance the diversity of the national bone marrow registry, increasing the likelihood for donor-recipient matches in currently underrepresented ethnic groups
