Innovations in Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine

Accelerating better lives

Disease occurs when systems fail. When cells die, tissues falter and organs decline. Treating disease, then, requires fixing the parts that fail.

That is the promise of stem cell medicine: replacing malfunctioning portions of the body. It’s a promise that will revolutionize the way we treat disease — and one that the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine grows closer to fulfilling every day.
