Advancing stem cell science with powerful implications for treatment of disease, injury, and problems of aging.
CSCI fosters interdisciplinary stem cell research with the goals of understanding developmental and regenerative processes, modeling and studying human diseases and the aging process, and developing cell and tissue-based diagnostics and therapeutics.
CSCI investigators span the Graduate school of Arts and Sciences, Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, and the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science. They membership to other institutes and centers such as the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center, Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center, Motor Neuron Center and the Columbia Center for Human Development.
Some laboratories will be housed in the upcoming dedicated CSCI space which will be located on the remodeled 11th floor of the William Black building. Others will remain housed in buildings across Columbia University Irving Medical Center and the Morningside Campus.
