As part of the University of Southern California, we are located in Los Angeles. Our objective is to foster a diverse and inclusive environment that creates a scientific culture reflecting the faces of our community and to unbiasedly deliver on the promise of regenerative medicine.

In order to advance our educational, scientific and clinical mission, USC Stem Cell is deeply committed to creating a culture that supports diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).

As educators and researchers, we strive for inclusivity and diversity in our programs at all levels—from high school scholars to postdoctoral fellows as well as from junior to senior faculty. We are dedicated to providing mentorship throughout the careers of our students, trainees, staff and faculty members, and access to our wider network in academia and industry.

As scientists and leaders in the field of regenerative medicine, we understand that health disparities are key factors in the manifestation of disease. We aim to understand the biological basis of health outcomes experienced by different communities of all ethnicities, races, genders, sexual orientations, religions, and socioeconomic statuses.
