Program Snapshot

The Regenerative Medicine Program (RMP) started in 2010 and is developing resources to catalyze therapeutic use of a special type of stem cells called induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). RMP consists of two initiatives: (1) the Stem Cell Translation Laboratory (SCTL), headed by Dr. Ilyas Singec, within the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS); and (2) a Therapeutic Challenge Award to Dr. Kapil Bharti at the National Eye Institute (NEI). RMP also supports distribution of induced pluripotent stem cell lines developed by the program for laboratory and clinical research. Through these initiatives and resources, the Regenerative Medicine Program works to accelerate breakthroughs in the development of stem cell-based therapies for complex diseases.
