The SSCN is a non-profit group of scientists, which was designed to:

  • Foster interactions among scientists and between scientists and society
  • Advance the discovery of basic molecular, cellular and organismic mechanisms of embryonic and adult stem cell functions in human and all model systems
  • Encourage and support young scientists, minorities and women in science
  • Provide the public at large with an informed and first hand view of current stem cell research
  • Discuss important scientific and ethical issues arising from stem cell research

The SSCN does not support reproductive cloning.
