Founded in 2006 by Prof. Elena Cattaneo (Department of Pharmacological Sciences), Prof. Giulio Cossu (Department of Biology), Prof. Fulvio Gandolfi (Department of Animal Sciences) and Prof. Ivan Torrent (Department of Neurological Sciences), the Interdepartmental Center for Stem Cell Research of University of Milano (UNISTEM) aims to integrate, coordinate and promote access to information relating to the study of stem cells and their potential application. In addition, the center promotes research on the biology of stem cells and their possible applications in medicine, pharmacology, toxicology and veterinary use: one of the most exciting and promising fields of biology and modern medicine. The main objectives are dissemination targeted to the general public at the regional level, high school and those who are interested in the subject, even though not directly active in the field of stem cells.

Each year UniStem organizes an outreach event on stem cells dedicated to high school students. This event, UniStem Day, is currenty the largest educational outreach initiative on stem cells and regenerative medicine in Europe. In 2019 the event was organized simultaneously by 99 universities across 15 countries and 4 continents, connecting 30 000 students in this worldwide event.

The LabEx REVIVE or stem cells in regenerative biology and medicine unites fundamental and applied stem cell researchers with selected partners from the biotechnology sector. It is structured around a dedicated research program on stem cells, including fundamental research, disease modeling, regenerative medicine and aging. REVIVE aims to federate a larger scale effort into a consortium for stem cell-based regenerative medicine and drug screening. REVIVE promotes technology transfer, training and address ethical issues in stem cell science.

The INCEPTION Insitut develops a research units consorsium to gather and mobilize data resources, numerical sciences, and fundamental experimental biology for health issues. INCEPTION uses Integrative Biology, Social Science and Data Science to understand the Emergence of Diseases in Populations and Individuals, gathering different fields of expertise (biology, medicine, computer science, mathematics, statistics, physics, and social sciences). INCEPTION aims to participate Graduate Multidisciplinary Education Program, at the interfaces of Life Sciences, and provide training opportunities for the next generation of researchers.

The organization of Unistem Day 2020 is a great opportunity to establish new collaborations between researchers from both consortia and highlight the capacity of the two federators to implement common educational outreach initiatives.
