White board: HIV/AIDS

How is stem cell research changing the lives of patients with HIV/AIDS? Find out how stem cell research at City of Hope, USC and Sangamo Biosciences, funded by California’s Proposition 71: California’s $3 billion stem cell research citizens’ ballot initiative, is leading to groundbreaking advances in treating HIV/AIDS.

Engineering undergraduates focus on building a microscope for USC’s stem cell research center

A team of five undergraduates from the USC Viterbi School of Engineering have built a specialized microscope as part of the course ENGR 499 Microscope Design and Construction. Called an optical projection tomography (OPT) microscope, the instrument produces three-dimensional images of pea-sized biological samples, such as organs and embryos. This provides a valuable tool that …

Student voices: USC’s Master of Science in Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine

Students share their experiences in USC’s Master of Science in Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine degree program. The new program is the first in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine in California, and one of only three in the U.S. The one-year program with an optional second research year offers courses in cutting-edge biomedical …

Take a tour of USC’s stem cell research center

Director Andy McMahon leads a tour of the Eli and Edythe Broad CIRM Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC.

New undergraduate course about science fiction and stem cells

USC is pleased to introduce a new undergraduate course starting in Spring 2015 called MEDS 380 Stem Cells: Fact and Fiction. From babies born with three biological parents to regrown body parts, the course explores the current state of stem cell biology as it closes the gap between reality and the sci fi visions of …

USC stem cell PhD students present blueprints for rebuilding the body

The students in the new PhD program in Development, Stem Cells, and Regenerative Medicine recently presented some ideas that would give Dr. Frankenstein a run for his money. For the summer course DSR 542 Principles of Developmental and Stem Cell Biology, eight teams of students presented elevator pitches and scientific posters outlining strategies for rebuilding …
