New Stem Cell Research Facility At UC Davis


A brand new facility, the $62 million UC Davis Institute for Regenerative Cures, which is supported by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, officially opened on March 10, at the Sacramento campus.

The new building is the first of many major, CIRM-supported laboratories to open. California’s stem cell agency provided most of the funding for the first phase of the project, which is going to be a hot spot for regenerative medicine research that will eventually be home to more than 200 UC Davis scientists and laboratory staff.

“Within this new stem cell institute, our scientists and physicians, from a wide range of disciplines, are working together to innovate and discover answers for people with serious injury and illness from across the state and around the world,” said Pomeroy. “This facility gives the best minds in medicine the tools they need to turn stem cells into cures.”

Over the past year and a half, work crews renovated 54,000 square feet of space, creating new research facilities that include Northern California’s largest academic Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) laboratory, a state-of-the-art suite of rooms that will allow scientists to prepare and manufacture cellular therapies for clinical trials.
