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.
