HI-STEM

Today, over 200 high-school students have visited the DKFZ to learn more about stem cells and their potential for applications in medicine. The UniStem Day is an international endeaveour to educate young people. In Germany it is organized in parallel at eleven cities and is coordinated by the German Stem Cell Network (GSCN).

During their visit at the DKFZ, Heidelberg University and HI-STEM, the students today learned from Andreas Trumpp why stem cells are "the coolest cells" in the body, had to solve the "stem cell quiz" and had the chance to visit several stem cell research labs on the campus.
