USC launches Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research Initiative

A new USC initiative has been introduced to support collaborative research in regenerative medicine and stem cell biology across the university, facilitating the critical move from basic research into clinical applications.

The USC Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research Initiative — spearheaded by Andrew McMahon, W.M. Keck Provost Professor of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine at the Keck School of Medicine of USC — will draw on existing research strengths and develop these strengths through strategic collaborations that reflect the imperative of working across academic units and campuses in order to successfully harness the promise of regenerative medicine.
