Dr. Owen Witte. The Broad Stem Cell Research Center is transforming patient care

Dear Friends,

It was a pleasure seeing so many of you at “Transforming Medicine: An Evening with UCLA Stem Cell Scientists.” My colleagues and I sincerely appreciate your interest in the UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research Center. Your enthusiasm drives us to continue pursuing life changing treatments that will indelibly change the way in which we practice medicine.

Our mission is to propel basic science discoveries into personalized cell-based therapies to treat the illnesses that many of us will face in our lifetime. With this in mind, I ask that you consider investing your philanthropy to support our mission.

Newly launched, the Director’s Circle is an exciting giving opportunity that provides critical unrestricted funding for the Center's highest priorities allowing our faculty the flexibility to creatively pursue their ground-breaking research. In its first year, the Center will match dollar for dollar the resources raised through the Director’s Circle. As a member of the Director’s Circle, you will be invited to a series of round table discussions with our faculty, providing an opportunity to more closely engage with our talented membership.

Should you wish to participate in this inaugural effort and support the Center through the Director's Circle, please access our giving page here.

Thank you in advance for your generous support. I wish you and yours a healthy and safe holiday season ahead.


Owen N. Witte
