Advisory Committee

The SJSU SCILL Advisory Committee provides program oversight and guidance. The Committee members were selected for their range of perspectives and experience in education, administration, internship program design and implementation, stem cell research, stem cell product commercialization, and stem cell clinical applications.

The SJSU SCILL Advisory Committee makes recommendations to the Program Director and the SJSU Mentorship Coordinator regarding success in meeting our three criteria:

  • student’s individual professional goals
  • program-wide function
  • employment and advancement of its graduates in stem cell careers
