The Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research:
The Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research is one of the largest and most comprehensive programs of its kind. Our mission is to combine yesterday's discoveries to create tomorrow's breakthroughs and shape the future of medicine.
The UCSF Broad Stem Cell Center is structured around eight research pipelines aimed at driving discoveries from the lab bench to the patient. Each pipeline focuses on a different organ system--reproductive, neural, blood, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, epithelial (gastrointestinal & skin), ophthalmology, pancreas and liver.
We foster a highly collaborative culture, encouraging the cross-pollination of ideas between scientists of different disciplines and years of experience. Researchers studying pancreatic beta cells damaged in diabetes collaborate with those studying nervous system diseases because at the heart of their research are stem cells that undergo similar molecular signaling on the way to becoming both cell types. The opportunity to work in this culture has drawn some of the country's premier scientists to the center.
