Stem Cell Research
The University of Michigan is a world leader in adult stem cell research and home to one of six U.S. “core facilities” for the maintenance of federally approved lines of human embryonic stem cells.
Stem cell studies using animal and human cells are underway across the U-M’s three Ann Arbor campuses. From the study of basic biological functions to the search for improved disease treatments, U-M researchers are addressing key questions in the promising field of stem cell science.
Much of the work is based at three locations, the three pillars of the U-M stem-cell research enterprise: the U-M Medical School’s Comprehensive Cancer Center; the Center for Stem Cell Biology at the Life Sciences Institute; and the Michigan Center for Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research.
