Translational Cardiac Stem Cell Research Program

The UCSF Translational Cardiac Stem Cell Program (TCSCP) was founded in 2003 with the mission to study stem cells and their role in treating different diseases. Our ultimate goal is to translate discoveries made in the basic biomedical sciences, technology, and stem-cell biology into revolutionary treatments that benefit patients suffering from life-threating diseases including heart disease, stroke, cancer, muscular dystrophy, and neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and Huntington’s disease.

Whether you are a patient looking for information regarding our research or a doctor hoping to learn more about stem cell therapy, we welcome you to the Translational Cardiac Stem Cell Program website.
