Regenerative Medicine Institute

The Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute aims to prevent and treat the world's most prevalent diseases through cell revitalization and transplantation.

Regenerative medicine is a new and developing field that aims to restore function in diseased or aged tissues through either revitalizing existing cells or transplanting new ones. At the Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute, researchers are turning stem cells into therapies for treating a multitude of prevalent diseases and conditions. We're also exploring how to prevent diseases and we're extending our knowledge to students in Los Angeles and researchers around the world.

Regenerative Medicine Programs

These programs at Cedars-Sinai are highly specialized in developing concentrated, collaborative research for personalized medicine.

Educational Programs

The Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute introduces students to the exciting world of regenerative medicine with the hope of inspiring the next generation of scientists.

We are utilizing stem cells to both model and treat human diseases. Our personalized medicine program is using cutting-edge technologies such as organ chips to emulate the human body and learn about diseases and develop novel drugs. We are also translating stem cell replacement therapies into patient clinical trials for a number of human diseases. When this kind of healthcare becomes reality, Cedars-Sinai will be among the first to share its many benefits with patients.
