With representation from over 55 UCLA departments, our center comprises more than 250 faculty members united by their dedication to advancing stem cell research and its clinical applications.

Built on the belief that interdisciplinary collaboration is vital to achieving breakthroughs in stem cell research, our center connects teams of experts, each contributing their distinct knowledge to address the most significant challenges in medicine from diverse perspectives.


BSCRC membership is open to UCLA faculty who have a significant interest in stem cells or regenerative medicine and can actively contribute to the center's mission. 

Faculty must have academic appointments in the Regular, In-Residence, Adjunct, or Clinical Instructor series at UCLA. Exceptions to this policy may be considered and evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
