The Cancer Stem Cell Consortium (CSCC) is a not-for-profit corporation that was incorporated in 2007 to coordinate an international strategy for cancer stem cell research and related translational activities. It is a self-assembled organization of intramural scientists at all levels of training with an interest in fundamental questions concerning stem cells, developmental biology, and cancer. CSCC hosts scientific exchanges, which include seminars by intramural and extramural colleagues, journal clubs, and retreats. It also supplies a forum for discussing ideas and sharing technologies, offering a collaborative environment for the translation of concepts and technologies to the clinic.


  • Promote scientific exchange of concepts, models, technologies, and expertise.

  • Enhance collaborations and leverage multidisciplinary approaches to fundamental questions surrounding stem cell and cancer biology.

  • Translate advances to clinical settings.
