Promoting Stem Cell Research

Stem cells hold great promise for a number of biomedical applications. This includes serving as models to further our understanding of complex biological processes, such as development and disease, to serving as tools for repairing and replacing tissues in the burgeoning field of regenerative medicine. Some of the biomedical problems being actively addressed on the CU Boulder campus include cancer, heart and skeletal muscle diseases, human reproduction and birth defects, neurological disorders, diabetes, the microbiome, mitochondrial diseases, immune system abnormalities, infectious diseases, and the role of genetics and epigenetics in many diseases.
