GSIP Alumni

The Gates Center for Regenerative Medicine considers GSIP to be one of its most important offerings. Having the opportunity to inspire the next generation of investigators and clinicians is an enormous but gratifying responsibility. We are grateful for the 116 interns who have participated in the program since its inception in 2015.
