SCOPE 2017: learn about stem cells in your own language

I’ve been working on an outreach program I call the Knoepfler Lab Stem Cell Outreach Program for Education (SCOPE).stem cells languages

The idea behind SCOPE is to make available on the Internet a basic page of facts about stem cells in as many languages as possible.

Our motto could be articulated as “Stem cells not lost in translation!”

Stem cells are a topic that concerns the people of the world, not just certain countries or certain people speaking only in certain languages.

SCOPE has been a big hit and as the number of languages has grown, the number of page views of my white paper “What are stem cells?” in languages besides English has skyrocketed. For example, our page in Spanish has received about 3,000 views, while the pages in Chinese and Japanese are not far behind. Vietnamese and Polish views are skyrocketing.

We are getting readers from all over the world who appreciate reading about stem cells in their own languages.

We now have the stem cell white paper in the following 32 languages (listed alphabetically with links in each specific language).

A big thank you goes to our volunteer translators!

If you can help with an additional translation in another language please email me at: knoepfler@ucdavis.edu

It’s a great thing to put on your CV for outreach and education, areas that many funding agencies including for fellowships are now looking for when evaluating applicants!
