Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC
About the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC
Established in 2006 with a gift from Eli and Edythe Broad, and support from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM), USC’s stem cell research center hosts world-class scientists who are harnessing the power of stem cell biology to treat neurodegeneration; hearing loss; blood, heart and kidney disease; osteoarthritis and bone fractures; and cancer.
USC’s talented researchers rely on the center’s state-of-the-art facilities in imaging; therapeutic screening; flow cytometry; and stem cell isolation, culture and engineering to move discoveries out of the laboratory and into the clinic.
USC’s stem cell research center also serves as the heart of the Department of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, as well as the USC Stem Cell initiative, an interdisciplinary, university-wide collaboration that leverages the transformative power of stem cells to develop the therapies of the future.
What I’m Reading: Stem Cell Postdoc Zlatka Stojanova offers a top pickZlatka Stojanova: Usher syndrome is a devastating genetic disorder that causes profound hearing loss, balance disorders and progressive blindness. In the ear, mutations in the Usher 1c (USH1C) gene lead to damage and loss of the inner ear’s sensory cells, causing deafness. Scientists from Harvard Medical School recently reported an unprecedented recovery of hearing in
