Mission

The mission of the UC San Diego CIRM Alpha Stem Cell Clinic is to accelerate the design of innovative stem cell research to advance the testing and delivery of safe and effective stem cell-based therapies in regenerative medicine.

For more information, please visit the CIRM Alpha Stem Cell Clinic page on the UC San Diego Health website.

We are one of three alpha clinics in a network designated by theCalifornia Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM), the states stem cell agency. The UC San Diego CIRM Alpha Stem Cell Clinic is the cell therapy arm ofSanford Stem Cell Clinical Center at UC San Diego Health.We specialize in early phase, first-in-human trials.

The Alpha Stem Cell Clinics are intended to create the long-term, networked infrastructure needed to launch and conduct numerous, extensive clinical trials of stem cell-based drugs and therapies in humans, including those developed by independent California-based investigators and companies. These trials are requisite before any new drug or treatment can be approved for clinical use.

The clinics will emphasize public education to raise awareness and understanding of stem cell science. This will combat stem cell tourism and the marketing of unproven, unregulated and potentially dangerous therapies. The clinics will also help establish sustainable business models for future, approved stem cell treatments.
