We are happy to announce that our new website is now online: www.stemcells.nrw.de (the web address remains the same). The content has been fundamentally revised and restructured. In the About Us section you will find the new organizational structure of the Stem Cell Network NRW, as well as an overview of our member institutions and board members. In our Discover section we provide basic information on stem cells and offer further resources for schools, doctors, patients, press representatives, etc.
We would particularly like to draw your attention to the new Research section, where we have gathered individual profiles of stem cell research groups in North Rhine-Westphalia. The interactive filter helps you to list research groups working with a specific cell type, organ system, or method. More than 35 groups are already listed. Curious to know which research groups are in your city (in North Rhine-Westphalia)? Use this map to find out!
So far, the data set includes only biomedical research groups. However, profiles of scientists conducting research on ethical, legal and societal aspects of stem cell research have already been requested and will be added soon. In case your research group is working with stem cells and located in North Rhine-Westphalia, but you have not been contacted yet, please contact the main office.
On our Events page, we not only announce upcoming activities of the Stem Cell Network North Rhine-Westphalia, but are also happy to list other relevant stem cell conferences. Feel free to contact the main office in case you would like to suggest an addition.
We hope you enjoy exploring the new website! Any feedback is welcome!
