The Sue & Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) is a world leader in research, having developed the first federally approved human trial of an embryonic stem cell treatment. UCI’s Stem Cell Research Center is pioneering research into stem cell therapies for Huntington’s, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Spinal Cord Injury, Traumatic Brain Injury, Cancer, Diabetes, Retinitis Pigmentosa, multiple sclerosis, and other diseases and conditions. We are continually evolving and expanding our areas of stem cell study. A big part of our effort is to inform the public about stem cell research and urge increased support for this exciting field. Due to the generosity of individual donors such as Sue J. Gross and William H. Gross, who made a $10 million gift to support stem cell research, the stem cell research building (Gross Hall) exists today. The center has a 100,000-square-foot staffed laboratory with $1.7 million worth of equipment critical to world-leading stem cell research.
The Stem Cell Research Center has a marvelous home at UCI, a top-ranked university dedicated to research, scholarship and community service. Please join us in this great adventure to transform medicine – our efforts now will make a world of difference for our children and future generations to manage and treat disease, heal from injuries, and age with good health.
