Embryonic Stem Cell Course (Stanford)

These instructional materials were developed with support from the National Science Foundation and have been used in embryonic stem cell courses at Stanford and at San Francisco State University.  Materials include Laboratory Protocols for both mouse and human embryonic stem cells, Lectures, Activities and Assessments.  A Bioethics activity includes extensive readings.  Two syllabi are provided to illustrate scheduling.  If a full course on stem cells is not appropriate for your curriculum, individual lectures and activity modules are well-suited for integration into existing bioscience or biotechnology courses.

Chris Scott of Stanford University is currently recruiting faculty and Institutions to implement these materials.  Please contact Chris (cscott@stanford.edu) if you are interested.
