Research

The breadth of research being conducted at the Broad Stem Cell Research Center is far reaching and seeks to bring basic laboratory research discoveries to the clinic. Our research programs include:

Core Resources

The Broad Stem Cell Research Center sponsors several shared core resources providing essential services to stem cell investigators that are beyond the capability of their individual labs.

Our core facilities strengthen our culture of collaboration and stimulate pioneering ideas that will advance the stem cell field.

Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine

Oversight & Review

EMBRYONIC STEM CELL RESEARCH OVERSIGHT (ESCRO) COMMITTEE & INSTITUTIONAL REVIEW BOARD (IRB) REVIEW

Forms and Policies

California law and Campus policy requires prospective ESCRO committee review and approval
of all human pluripotent stem cell research.

Variations Found in Early Stages of Stem Cell Development

Human embryonic stem cells hold great promise for studying and treating disease and for the practice of regenerative medicine. However, more must be learned to ensure that the cells that may one day be transplanted into humans are safe.

BSCRC scientists uncover previously unknown patterns of DNA methylation

A previously unknown pattern in DNA methylation - an event that affects cell function by altering gene expression – has been uncovered for the first time by stem cell researchers at UCLA, a finding that could have implications in preventing some cancers and correcting defects in human stem cell lines.

Three UCLA hESC lines have been accepted into the NIH Human Embryonic Stem Cell Registry

Three human embryonic stem cell lines created by researchers at the UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research Center have been accepted into the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Human Embryonic Stem Cell Registry, allowing them to be used in federally funded research projects and increasing the diversity of cell lines available for study.

$3.9 Million in Basic Biology II Grants

Three UCLA scientists were awarded state stem cell grants totaling $3.9 million today to fund investigations into the basic mechanisms underlying stem cell biology, cellular differentiation and cellular plasticity, the ability of adult stem cells to become cells other than their cell of origin.

BSCRC scientists reveal different functions in diverse cells of the immune system, providing a non-invasive and much clearer picture of an immune response in action

A commonly used probe for Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanning and a new probe developed by researchers at UCLA reveal different functions in diverse cells of the immune system, providing a non-invasive and much clearer picture of an immune response in action.
