State Initiatives for Stem Cell Research

  • California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) Makes grants and provides loans for stem cell research, research facilities, and other research opportunities at California universities and research institutions.
  • Connecticut Stem Cell Research Program Provides grants-in-aid for conducting embryonic or human adult stem cell research.
  • Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO) Provides emerging technology companies and university researchers with funding and specialized technical assistance.
  • Stem Cell Institute of New Jersey UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey have jointly established The Stem Cell Institute of New Jersey. The mission of the Institute is to carry out research, training, and clinical studies on the application of stem cells to the treatment and cure of human disease.
  • 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.
  • The National Center for Regenerative Medicine The Center builds upon research and clinical programs at its founding institutions – Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), Cleveland Clinic (CC), University Hospitals Case Medical Center (UHCMC), Athersys, and The Ohio State University (OSU) – in heart disease, cancer, genetic disorders, and neurodegenerative diseases, coupled with research on non-embryonic stem cells at these institutions.  The center seeks to translate innovative laboratory research into the clinical and commercial arenas to replace and repair diseased tissues and organs.
  • Interstate Alliance on Stem Cell Research (IASCR) Fosters effective interstate collaboration, helps states develop research programs, and promotes efficient and responsible use of public funds.
