V. How does NIH support stem cell research?

NIH conducts and funds basic, translational, and clinical research with a range of different types of stem cells. NIH-supported research with human pluripotent stem cells is conducted under the terms of the NIH Guidelines for Human Stem Cell Research. NIH awards are listed in various categories of stem cell research through the NIH Estimates of Funding for Various Research, Condition, and Disease Categories (RCDC). NIH also supports a major adult stem cell and iPSC research initiative through the Regenerative Medicine Innovation Project.
