The reach of the Taubman Institute extends beyond our scholars’ laboratories; we’re also funding the Consortium for Stem Cell Therapies, where stem cell lines are developed and distributed. The Consortium already has become a recognized leader, developing one of the nation’s first embryonic stem cell lines.
And in the spirit of sharing and collaboration, we’re facilitating the exchange of ideas among scientific colleagues from across campus and across the ocean by sponsoring opportunities for visionary scientists to share ideas and knowledge.
Current programs include our monthly Taubman Talks and the new Visiting Professor lecture series, which invites scientists nominated by Taubman Scholars to speak at public lectures on the Medical School campus.
Our Israel Initiative has brought eminent scientists from Israel to Ann Arbor for meetings with local researchers.
