Our Mission

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

9th Massachusetts Life Sciences Innovation (MALSI) Day



Harvard Club of Boston, 374 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA

It is the biggest day for life sciences startups and innovation in Massachusetts. This is a high-energy, hands-on event which brings together scientific leaders and business experts to mingle with scientists, post-docs, professors, entrepreneurs, innovators, and venture capitalists.  A key goal of the event is an exchange of ideas, to connect the broader scientific community with those working in finance and policy.  The earliest insight can, in time, foster an entire industry.
