Sue and Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center
The vision of UCI’s Sue & Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center (SCRC) is to progress the understanding and therapeutic potential of stem cell science and regenerative medicine to improve human disease/injury. The SCRC is built upon the campus’s long-standing strengths in neuroscience, developmental biology, engineering and pharmacology, and benefits from faculty collaborations with other UCI Organized Research Units and Centers. Sue and Bill Gross Hall: A CIRM Institute was dedicated in May 2010 and is one of twelve buildings in the state funded by taxpayer support through the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine. Gross Hall at UCI is home to sixty-three world-class faculty, clinicians, and training fellows in stem cell research, and includes a core lab facility outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment critical to human stem cell research as well as a CIRM Alpha Stem Cell Clinic site and infusion center.
