Regenerative Medicine Institute Programs
The Regenerative Medicine Institute brings together five complementary programs of research that all have a regenerative medicine theme (brain, eye, immunology, pancreas and liver, and skeletal). Together with an active recruitment program, the Institute will continue to expand to advance translational therapies for serious human diseases.
While the Regenerative Medicine Institute is focusing on novel ways to regenerate organs and transplant stem cells for tissue repair, there are other institutes on the Cedars-Sinai campus who do regenerative work. For example, the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute is involved in heart stem cell therapy for cardiac repair and the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute is involved in blood stem cell therapies for a number of conditions.
RMI works closely with these and other institutes at Cedars-Sinai to provide new technologies for generating new lines of stem cells that can be used in the Medical Center's clinical programs.
In some cases RMI partners with other institutions to provide core services related to stem cell production and tissue regeneration, while they provide us with an opportunity to gain the clinical expertise to move cell therapies into clinical practice.
