Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC

Welcome

Welcome to the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research, located on the University of Southern California’s Health Sciences Campus.

Our investigators are exploring the normal mechanisms that build, maintain and repair our body systems, to develop knowledge-based approaches for regenerative medicine. Scientists are researching kidney, liver, neural, blood, cardiovascular, skeletal and skin disease models.

The center serves as a hub for USC Stem Cell, which connects researchers in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine across USC.

Discovery could lead to biological treatment for common birth defect

USC researchers have discovered which stem cells are responsible for the growth of craniofacial bones in mice — a finding that could have a profound impact on the understanding and treatment of craniosynostosis, a birth defect that can lead to an array of physical and intellectual disabilities in humans. The article was published in the April 2015 issue of Nature Cell Biology.
