Stem Cell Community at Children's
The Stem Cell Community at Boston Children’s Hospital is a broad and active one, comprising more than forty “affiliated” faculty and labs within Children’s that are engaged in stem cell research as well the core Stem Cell Program and its faculty. The affiliated labs represent a wide range of departments, demonstrating the cross-cutting nature of interest and belief in the potential of stem cells. Some of the extensive research currently underway by our affiliated faculty labs is discussed in the Research on Diseases section of this website.
Twice a year, campus-wide “Stem Cell Days” are held for all Children’s Stem Cell Affiliate Faculty and their labs, to come together with members of the stem cell program. These events result in an opportunity for sharing research and for developing cross-collaborations on areas of common interest.
