UniStem Day is a one-day meeting organized for high school students since 2009. This event, solely dedicated to the dissemination and outreach of stem cell science and research, provides an opportunity to foster learning, discovery and debate on the themes of knowledge and innovation starting from stem cell research. The event showcases cutting edge research, paints a picture of the daily work of a scientist, and explores the mechanisms behind scientific breakthroughs, including the cultural expectations. By offering lessons, debates, visits at the laboratories and recreational moments, the students engage with the concepts and methodologies involved in stem cell research. Furthermore, they will gain an appreciation for science and how it can be fun and build personal character and relationships based on evidence, perseverance and integrity.
Prof. Dr. Andras Dinnyes is a regular lecturer at the UniStem Day Hungary. This year he guides his audience through the adventures of the stem cell research, with a particular focus on the status of science and therapy in the 21st century. The event is organized by the Central European University (CEU) and the Center for Ethics and Law in Biomedicine (CELAB) on 10 March.
