Schuele Lab SCILL Posters

The Schuele laboratory has been a proud host for the San José State University Consortium for Stem Cell Internships in Laboratory-based Learning (SCILL) program. This program is supported by a Bridges to Stem Cell Research Grant from The California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM TB1-01195).

In the Schuele laboratory, we provide students a 12-month, full-time internship in stem cell research aimed at generating human induced stem cell models of Parkinson's Disease. Students receive a Master of Science or Master of Biotechnology after sucessful completion of the program. Students present their internship projects during the final poster reception at the end of their internship. The students' posters at The Parkinson's Institute are shown below.
