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's Justin Ichida, Sanofi and DRVision team up to fight ALS

USC Stem Cell researcher Justin Ichida, PhD, has marshaled the expertise of pharmaceutical company Sanofi and start up DRVision Technologies along with $1.5 million in federal funding to find new drugs to fight amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease. In ALS, patients suffer from the death of the cells that transmit signals from the brain to the muscles, called motor neurons, leading to progressive paralysis and usually resulting in fatal respiratory failure within three to five years of diagnosis.
