UC San Diego CIRM Alpha Stem Cell Clinic: Stem Cells in the News
Our Service to You
The mission of the UC San Diego CIRM Alpha Stem Cell Clinic ("Alpha Clinic") is to accelerate the design of innovative stem cell research to advance the testing and delivery of safe and effective stem cell-based therapies in regenerative medicine. As an academic center and in line with CIRM's mission, we also wish to engage the public with developments in the field of stem cell research and to dispell myths (sometimes referred to as "stem cell tourism").
