Over the past several years, USC has emerged as a world leader in stem cell research. Your gift can help fulfill the potential of stem cells to prevent, treat or even reverse a multitude of medical conditions, including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and kidney and liver diseases.


Giving to USC stem cell research helps advance the development of important new technological innovations and provides talented faculty members with the funding needed to support world-class research and translation of the results into clinical applications. Your support is critical to our success.

Priorities include:

Endowed Professorship

An endowment in honor of or in memory of a friend or loved one would help USC continue to attract and retain outstanding faculty.

Endowed Research Fund

An endowment would help launch a stem cell research initiative directed toward solving the mysteries of a specific disease.

Current Use Research Fund

A current use gift may be designated to help support a specific area of stem cell research.

Current Use Flexible Fund

An undesignated gift would help to support educational programs or to purchase needed equipment for the research laboratories.

If you would like to discuss funding opportunities, please contact Gina Weitzel, Senior Associate Vice President for Health Sciences Advancement, at 323-442-1596 or

Or make a gift online.

Thank you for your support of stem cell research at USC.
