Patient Care

The institute is primarily a place of research, where scientists are discovering the stem cell treatments of the future. While we sometimes conduct early clinical trials, we don't offer stem cell treatments to the public.

The use of stem cells to treat human disease is often depicted as a possibility that lies far in the future. In fact, physicians have already been using stem cells therapeutically for years in the form of bone marrow transplantation, a procedure in which the blood-forming stem cells of the bone marrow are used to regenerate the blood supply after irradiation or chemotherapy.

It’s true, however, that the great promise of regenerative medicine is yet to come. Scientists at the institute are working to make that promise a reality. Through basic research, translational research and clinical trials, scientists are coming closer to the cures of which we all dream.
