Boston is a scientific and medical mecca that is home to world class universities, award winning hospitals, and biotech and pharmaceutical companies. It is an energetic hub containing brilliant and creative minds. Boston is outlined by the Charles River, on which Bostonians kayak, row, and sail; its residents love to fill the park paths with runners, bikers, and walkers. One can enjoy all seasons from the snow to the polychromatic leaves to flowers and the beach. Boston is a unique metropolis with a little something for everyone.
Founded in 2004, the Center for Regenerative Medicine (CRM) is a multidisciplinary research center at the Massachusetts General Hospital and is affiliated with the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI). The CRM was founded with the goal of better understanding stem cell biology in order to treat disease across a range of disciplines: hematology, epigenetics, neurogenesis, cancer biology and tissue engineering. Pulling inspiration, knowledge, and resources from the hospital, labs are poised to directly translate their studies into treatments for patients. The laboratories in the CRM work interactively, allowing for a complex exploration of the biology we are trying to understand.
