HSCI's Mission

Having fulfilled the promise of its first decade by advancing the understanding of the potential of stem cell biology, the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) is now focused on bringing stem cell-based treatments to patients as quickly as possible. While continuing to advance scientific discovery, HSCI researchers are developing treatments for diseases of aging, the blood, metabolism, and neurological disorders. To accomplish this, the HSCI brings together more than 1,000 scientists in the schools and affiliated hospitals of Harvard, funds novel research, and implements new collaborative academic and industrial models.
