Stem Cell Training has recognized the need for knowledge on stem cells amongst physicians and healthcare professionals, thus creating the Fellowship of Stem Cell Therapy and Tissue Engineering program. Stem cell therapies involve the potential replacement of cells or organs that are diseased, injured, infirmed, ailing or aged. In this modular training program, a group of experienced academicians, involved in stem cell transplantation, present a series of topics to cover the general principles and practice of stem cell biology and evidence-based treatments for physicians to optimize the health of their patients.
