In March 2020 at the start of the Covid-19 Pandemic, Harvard University took immediate preventative measures to protect its students and employees. By May 2020, the University announced its research laboratory re-entry plan including prevention of workplace exposure and limiting contact within our research laboratories. The department in collaboration with the FAS continues to maintain many of these measures. Information and resources about Covid-19 workplace safety can be found at the link below.
Combating disease and tissue degeneration and improving human health.
This is the ultimate goal of HSCRB’s research, whether it is focused on the most basic level of cellular development or screening chemical compounds for potential drugs. Our mission is to push the frontiers of stem cell and regenerative biology, illuminating the workings of human health and disease in both basic discovery and clinical settings.
The best place to learn about stem cell science, at the graduate and undergraduate level.
HSCRB is the place to learn about stem cell science at both the graduate level and the undergraduate level. We are committed to transforming medicine by cultivating a deeper knowledge of stem cell and regenerative biology, and to training the next generation to explore new frontiers in biomedical science. All of our students conduct independent research.
