Advancing research & scholarship in the stem cell field while staying committed to a deep-rooted Catholic identity.
The Center for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine at the University of Notre Dame is an interdisciplinary enterprise, bringing together biologists, biomolecular engineers, lawyers, philosophers, and theologians to advance the research and application of adult stem cells and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells in a wide variety of organisms, while also stimulating the ethical and legal discussion associated with stem cells and their use.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently announced the winners of the 2017 Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). Overall, 15 Notre Dame students, affiliates, and alumni won the prestigious award. Among this decorated cohort are five current College of Science undergraduate and graduate students and four alumni.
The fellowship was designed to recognize and support outstanding graduate students for three years of study in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) who are pursuing master’s and doctoral degrees in the United States.
No upcoming events at this time.

The Roeder lab explores how synthetic structures (scaffolds) that are made from different biomaterials can affect the growth and differentiation of adult stem cells and support cells (such as blood vessels) to develop approaches to repair damaged bones. Learn more about the research taking place in the Roeder Lab.
We asked Rebecca Marton, (ND class of 2014) to describe a little about her experience as an undergraduate researcher in the Center for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine at Notre Dame and how that impacted her decision to pursue a doctoral degree in the Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine (SCBRM) Program at Stanford University.
