Research Programs at Universities and Institutions
- Harvard Stem Cell Institute Supports research into all aspects of stem cell biology, with special emphasis on those areas with the greatest potential for improving human health.
- Johns Hopkins Institute for Cell Engineering (ICE) Represents the stem cell research effort at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where faculty, fellows, postdocs and students and staff study some of the most exciting problems in stem cell science today.
- McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine Established for University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and University of Pittsburgh Medical Center scientists and clinical faculty working to develop tissue engineering, cellular therapies, biosurgery, and artificial and biohybrid organ devices.
- National Human Neural Stem Cell Resource Provides neural stem cells harvested from the post-natal, post-mortem, human brain to the research community for stem cell research.
- New York Stem Cell Science (NYSTEM) Supports basic, applied, translational or other research and development activities that will advance scientific discoveries in fields related to stem cell biology.
- Pittsburgh Development Center of Magee-Womens Research Institute Explores the molecular biology of cell function, including the potential of stem cells for treating human disease.
- Sloan-Kettering Institute Part of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the world's oldest and largest private institution devoted to patient care, education, and research into cancer.
- Stanford University School of Medicine/Institute for Cancer/Stem Cell Biology and Medicine Explains Stanford's involvement and perspective on stem cell issues, with links to related sites.
- Texas Heart Institute Stem Cell Center Dedicated to the study of adult stem cells and their role in treating cardiovascular disease, including clinical trials (in human patients), as well as many preclinical studies (in the laboratory) using stem cells.
- Tulane Center for Stem Cell Research and Regenerative Medicine is developing new therapies for a series of common diseases including osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, Parkinsonism, spinal cord injury, stroke, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. The Center also provides educational programs for career development, job training and life-long learning of citizens.
- University of California, San Francisco/Developmental and Stem Cell Biology Program Highlights of UCSF human embryonic stem cell research.
- University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine's Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute ISCI's goal is to spearhead cell based therapies for a host of untreatable diseases. Its focus includes research in basic cell biology, hematology, oncology, cardiology, dermatology, diabetes and endocrinology, neurology, orthopaedics, pediatrics, and ethics and science policy.
- University of Minnesota: Stem Cell Institute Works to enhance understanding of stem cells' potential to improve human and animal health.
- University of Pennsylvania: Institute for Regenerative Medicine IRM was created to promote basic discoveries in stem cell biology and regeneration, and to translate those discoveries into new therapies that may alleviate suffering and disease. Additionally, education and outreach at the IRM aims to ensure students from kindergarten through graduate school are exposed to exciting and accurate education about regenerative biology and stem cell research.
- University of Wisconsin/Embryonic Stem Cell Research Scientists at UW-Madison were the first to successfully isolate and culture human embryonic stem cells.
