Jill Trainer is with the school’s College of Natural Sciences. She says those students will be interning at UC Davis’ Institute for Regenerative Cures. 

“Where they will be doing research as part of teams that work on specific diseases that have the potential for stem cell applications for treatments and cures.” 

Trainer says the goal is to produce skilled researchers who can staff the growing number of stem cell laboratories. 

The money for the graduate program comes from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine. That’s the state’s voter-approved stem cell agency. It manages $3 billion in research money.
