Molecular Medicine Training Program Faculty

The Stanford CIRM Scholar Training Program in Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine draws on the expertise of diverse faculty with a broad range of research interests, including many physician-scientists leading translational efforts.

Just over half of the CIRM Scholar Training Program faculty are physician-scientists and many have been involved in developing novel therapeutic agents for clinical application. Our faculty hold primary appointments in a large range of clinical and basic science departments, providing a deep pool of potential labs and projects from which each CIRM Scholar student can select based on their particular scientific and medical interest.
