Because modern biomedical research is multidisciplinary, research at UCLA is focused in various institutes and centers in addition to departments. Thus, Pathology faculty members have multiple affiliations that transcend traditional departmental boundaries.
The BSCRC is on the cusp of transforming patient care through the development of personalized stem cell based therapies for a wide range of diseases. Our commitment to innovation and cross disciplinary collaboration continually reshapes and expands the culture of scientific exploration at UCLA and positions us as a leader in the field. Read more>>
