Outreach Activities

We seek to foster connections between faculty, staff, students, and the community. We strive to facilitate communication among the multitude of outreach and engagement efforts and connect with the society in Denmark and abroad.

We build relationships and provide resources that enable a wide range of high-quality outreach and engagement opportunities and efforts that connect DanStem with individuals and communities at the local, and regional levels.

Through lectures, projects and teaching activities, we deliver reliable information on stem cell research and developmental biology.
