The Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research
In 2007, The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation provided $20 million to the UCLA Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Medicine to fund adult and embryonic stem cell research, enhancing a program that brings together biologists, chemists, engineers, geneticists and other scientists to develop new and more effective treatments for cancer, HIV/AIDS, Parkinson’s, metabolic disorders and other medical conditions. The gift funds the purchase of specialized, high-tech laboratory equipment and supports faculty recruitment through research grants and endowed professorships.

In 2007, The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation committed $30 million toward the construction of a center for stem cell research as part of the Health Sciences Campus of USC. This founding gift enables the creation of an approximately 80,000-square-foot building with state-of-the-art research laboratories and offices. The center will serve to foster collaboration between translational research and technology groups to turn stem cell discoveries into therapies.

The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation committed $25 million in 2008 to create a center to accelerate the development of stem cell research at the University of California, San Francisco. The Broad Center will support cross-campus collaborations for the research of specific diseases, with disease-oriented teams led by a stem cell investigator and clinician-scientist. The ultimate goal is the translation of stem cell research into the therapy of common diseases.
