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.

USC stem cell PhD students present their blueprints for rebuilding the body

The students in the new PhD program in Development, Stem Cells, and Regenerative Medicine recently presented some ideas that would give Dr. Frankenstein a run for his money. For the summer course DSR 542 Principles of Developmental and Stem Cell Biology, eight teams of students presented elevator pitches and scientific posters outlining strategies for rebuilding the body’s organ systems.

USC offers a summer of stem cells for local high school students

Twenty-three local high school students spent their summer vacations in a very unusual place: the Eli and Edythe Broad CIRM Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC. This August, these students celebrated their graduations from the USC Early Investigator High School (EiHS) and the USC CIRM Science, Technology and Research (STAR) programs.

Request for proposals: Eli and Edythe Broad Innovation Award

A recent gift from the Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation established the Eli and Edythe Broad Innovation Awards at USC. An annual research grant of $120,000 will be awarded to one innovative, multi-­investigator proposal that broadly advances the goals of USC Stem Cell. We anticipate five awards over the next five years. Personnel other than principal investigators (PIs), supplies and minor equipment up to $10,000 are eligible for funding.
