Research

Our research program bridges gaps in traditional funding to encourage bold thinking and nurture scientific careers. We strive to create a highly collaborative environment with multiple channels of interaction, which gives rise to new ideas, new programs, and the resources to support them.

Disease programs

We channel world-class resources, both intellectual and technological, toward some of the most prevalent, devastating diseases for which stem cell research holds promise. The HSCI Disease Programs fall into five overarching research groups: Aging, Blood, Discovery, Metabolic Diseases, and Neuroscience.

Core Facilities

Members of the HSCI community benefit from resources that are beyond the means of any individual lab. Our core facilities offer immediate access to specialized equipment, reagents and materials, know-how, and training.

Early-Stage Research

HSCI Seed Grants and Junior Faculty Programs provide early funding for innovative projects in stem cell research. These focused funds allow scientists to pursue "high risk/high reward" avenues of research that might be difficult to fund from other sources.

MD/PhD Fellowship

The HSCI Medical Scientist Training Fellowship is awarded to Harvard Medical School students who demonstrate strong interest in stem cell research and HSCI believes will contribute to the future of the field.

HSCI Internship Program

HSCI's leading stem cell internship program provides undergraduate students with a focused and challenging summer research experience in a cutting-edge stem cell lab.
