The mission of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) is to find cures for human diseases. Through collaborative research, we seek to:
- Stimulate the repair of stem cells in patients
- Develop novel gene and cell-based therapies
- Create stem-cell-based tools to speed up drug discovery
The Harvard community and the greater Boston area are home to the largest concentration of biomedical researchers in the world. This allows our network of over 1000 scientists, from across Harvard and its 10 affiliated hospitals, to advance stem cell biology and translational medicine in a way no other single entity can.
