The HSCRB community is at the heart of a broader research network, with close collaborations and partnerships across the Boston area and throughout the world.
Our department on the main Cambridge campus sits alongside Harvard’s departments of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, and Chemistry and Chemical Biology. We also have laboratories at Harvard Medical School in the Longwood hospital district, and at Massachusetts General Hospital.
A number of our faculty have joint appointments at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, and the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
The Harvard Stem Cell Institute
All of our faculty are members of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI), a network of 1000+ scientists specializing in stem cell and regenerative biology and based at Harvard University and its eight affiliated hospitals.
International Society for Stem Cell Research
We have close ties with the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR), an independent, nonprofit organization that fosters the exchange and dissemination of information and ideas relating to stem cells and promotes professional education in all areas of stem cell research and application.
The Harvard Catalyst serves Harvard’s biomedical research community. Its purpose is to foster an environment focused on team science, where discoveries are translated efficiently to improve human health. The Catalyst offers many online and in-person courses and training programs. It also provides mechanisms and platforms that facilitate connections among thousands of researchers and trainees across the University.
