Laboratory-based research at Harvard University has been put on hold, with the exception of research into COVID-19. We will maintain only the most critical functions to safeguard materials that are essential to our on-going mission of finding cures for all human diseases, and will continue to work remotely.
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.
