Young researchers choose Europe for stem cell careers
Young researchers choose Europe for stem cell careers Human stem cell research has arguably been one of the most debated scientific issues at national and European levels in recent years.
As such, a recent Science article had a look at the state of affairs for stem cell research in Europe. The magazine took stock of human stem cell policy across the EU and examined its effects on young researchers making career choices in an equally nascent field.
Several researchers point to such initiatives as Marie-Curie mobility grants and the flagship project EuroStemCell, funded by the EU’s framework programme, as reasons why they have chosen to tie their careers to Europe’s stem cell future.
