scientific focus area thumbnail logoStem Cell Biology research studies all aspects of the three primary types of stem cells: adult stem cells, embryonic stem cells, and the genetically reprogrammed induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). With their ability to grow quickly and convert into other specialized cell types, stem cells offer great promise as therapy for a number of diseases.
