Berkeley Stem Cell Center
The Berkeley Stem Cell Center supports research and teaching in stem cell biology, engineering, and medicine at UC Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and Children's Hospital and Research Center at Oakland. Activities sponsored by the Center include seminars, roundtables, and an annual retreat. The Center's CIRM funded Shared Stem Cell Research Laboratories in Stanley Hall and LSA provide investigators with fully equipped stem cell tissue culture and flow cytometry facilities and outstanding technical expertise. Its CIRM Center of Excellence, located in the Li Ka-Shing Center for Biomedical and Health Sciences, provides additional state of the art laboratory space and core facilities for tissue culture and flow cytometry, as well as molecular and cellular and whole animal imaging. Through its CIRM training program, the Center annually awards stem cell research fellowships to 16 highly talented pre-doctoral, postdoctoral, and physician scientists in training. The Siebel Stem Cell Institute-UC Berkeley supports stem cell research collaborations between Berkeley Stem Cell Center and Stanford University investigators, and provides funding to bring notable visiting scholars to campus.
