Come meet us at the Minnesota State Fair!

The University of Minnesota Stem Cell Institute offers fair-goers an opportunity to learn more about their bodies and health while glimpsing the future of regenerative medicine. Discover how scientists are making remarkable progress in science and medicine by using stem cells to learn about human development and to lay the groundwork for life-changing therapies that use the body's ability to heal itself. Researchers will guide fair-goers through a fascinating display of 3-D models, organs, and actual stem cells visible through a microscope.
