Roddenberry Stem Cell Center
Scientists at the Gladstone Institutes use stem cells to better understand, prevent, treat, and cure some of the world’s most devastating diseases.
Stem cell and regenerative medicine research at Gladstone embodies the organization’s spirit of deep discovery and innovation and brings together scientists from across its three institutes to solve a wide range of diseases.
Gladstone strategically built a diverse community of scientific and clinical experts whose mission is to make ground-breaking scientific discoveries and bring these advances to the clinic. With expertise in stem cell biology, medicine, chemistry, and engineering, Gladstone is uniquely positioned to tackle complex problems from various angles with a highly collaborative, team-based approach.
