About the course

Stem cells provide enormous potential for the field of regenerative medicine. Their ability to become any type of cell—blood, heart, brain, bones, skin, muscles, etc.—offers hope for effective treatments, or perhaps even reversal of, a disease.

This course will advance your understanding of cell-based therapies and show you what it is being done today to develop and deliver them. Discover new ways to restore organ and tissue function for the treatment of chronic diseases, genetic disorders and serious injuries. Get a glimpse inside the laboratory of medical researchers who are pioneering stem cell therapeutics.

This course is an elective course in the Stanford Genetics and Genomics Certificate.

You Will Learn

  • Different sources of stem cells and how to identify them
  • Key components in the CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing method
  • Methods for quantifying iPS cell engraftment
  • Practices for designing and generating human iPS cells

Time to Complete

You should expect to spend 10-18 hours to complete each course, depending on your familiarity with the topic.

For individual courses, we recommend that you designate 2-3 hours per week to watch video lectures and complete assignments in order to finish within 60 days.

Since the All-Access Plan allows you to access all courses for one year, you can determine how quickly to progress, but you must complete courses with 365 days in order to receive credit.


You can earn the Stanford Genetics and Genomics Certificate by successfully completing the two required and any four elective courses. You may enroll in courses individually or through the All-Access Plan.
