What our Students are saying




ISSCA has recognized the need for knowledge on stem cells among physicians and healthcare professionals, thus creating the International Stem Cell Therapy and Tissue Engineering  Fellowship program.

Stem cell therapies involve the potential replacement of cells or organs that are diseased, injured, inflamed, ailing or aged.

In this modular training program, a group of experienced academicians, involved in stem cell transplantation, present a series of topics to cover the general principles and practice of stem cell biology and evidence-based treatments for physicians to optimize the health of their patients.


  • In detail program offering hands-on experience in stem cell characterization and laboratory applications.
  • Learn cell culture including plating, trypsinization, harvesting, and cryopreservation.
  • Understand and apply quality control tests including cell count, viability, flow cytometry, endotoxin, mycoplasma and sterility.
  • Perform cGMP functions including clean room maintenance, gowning and environmental monitoring.
  • Insight and relevant applications of stem cell processing and the regulations in a certified facility.
  • Attendees given the tools necessary to implement regulatory and clinical guidelines when setting up a GMP facility.
  • Copies of presentations, procedural protocols and all forms associated with a GMP facility provided.
  • Perform clinical procedures including lipoaspirate and bone marrow isolation
  • Reintroduce stem cells for various indications

One of our experienced and skilled trainers will help you treat a few patients with our regenerative medicine therapies.

Live & Recorded Webinars on all topics of regenerative medicine.

All of our courses and our supporting materials are provided in English and/or Spanish

In order to incorporate regenerative medicine into your practice after you have completed one of our training courses, you will need several pieces of equipment.

You can order them online by visiting www.adimarket.net

In order to schedule an on-site training at your clinic you will need to have already completed either the in-person or online stem cell training course.

Once you have completed either course, please contact our training customer service line at 305-560-5337.

If for any reason you register for one of our in-person training courses but are unable to attend we will extend full credit toward another in-person training course at a later date.

The training course fees are non-refundable.

Yes, our first priority is to provide interested medical professionals the capability to perform stem cell derived treatments in their own practice.

We assure you that we will give you the necessary tools, methods, and practice to be able to fully perform the procedures in your clinic. Stem cell treatments under the practice of medicine are allowed, and utilize materials that are produced according to Good Manufacturing Practices (or cGMP) set forth by the FDA.

Our procedures do not infringe upon any established regulations in place.

What we cannot assert is whether the procedure complies with the respective medical regulatory agencies in your particular country of practice.

We highly recommend that you check with your Regulatory entities to review their standing as far as stem cell treatments are concerned.
