Year 3

Two world-renowned research universities with their regional partners have joined forces to create the CIRM Alpha Stem Cell Clinic (ASCC) Consortium. We are uniquely qualified by our respective institutional knowledge and collective experience to establish best practices for the delivery of stem cell therapies and education as we combine: 1) world-class state-of-the-art medical centers and related healthcare systems; 2) highest caliber stem cell research and education; 3) long established and successful gene medicine programs; and 4) robust and varied clinical trial infrastructure. Together, the UCLA-UCI ASCC supports 19 active stem cell-based clinical trials in the following disease categories: aging, blood disorders, infectious disease, nephrology, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, and wound care.
