On March 15th 2013, 15,000 students from Italy and across Europe will get together to participate in UniStem Day 2013. First held in 2009 to connect high school students with researchers, the event continues to grow. For the first time in 2013 it extends beyond Italy to involve 6 Spanish universities (led by Universitat de Barcelona) as well as the University of Edinburgh's MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine in Scotland. UniStem Day is happening simultaneously at 9AM throughout Europe.
Each participating university will have its own special program of talks from scientists, ethicists, clinicians in the field and hands-on activities in the afternoon, when labs open their doors to show what day-to-day research is like.
