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 1,000 scientists, from across Harvard and its eight affiliated hospitals, to advance stem cell biology and translational medicine in a way no other single entity can.
Through collaborative research, we seek to:
• Stimulate healing in patients by harnessing the potential of stem cells
• Create targeted treatments by combining new gene- and cell-based therapies with traditional medicines
• Accelerate drug discovery by developing novel stem cell-based tools.
