Institute for Stem Cell Biology & Regenerative Medicine
The institute was established in 2002 to build on Stanford’s leadership in stem cell science and to set the foundations for the creation of a new field of science: regenerative medicine. The institute is devoted to exploring the how stem cells are created, the mechanisms by which they are regulated and how they devolve into specialized cells. READ MORE
Department of Developmental Biology
Most broadly put, developmental biologists seek to understand the emergence of all the complexity of a human, an insect or a flower from a single fertilized ovum. Our root principles: sharing facilities, creating frequent communication opportunities, and giving all researchers in the Department the freedom and support they need to explore guided by their own curiosity and inventiveness.
