Stem cells provide enormous potential for the field of regenerative medicine. Their ability to become any type of cell—blood, heart, brain, bones, skin, muscles, etc.—offers hope for effective treatments, or perhaps even reversal of, a disease.

This course will advance your understanding of cell-based therapies and show you what it is being done today to develop and deliver them. Discover new ways to restore organ and tissue function for the treatment of chronic diseases, genetic disorders and serious injuries. Get a glimpse inside the laboratory of medical researchers who are pioneering stem cell therapeutics.

This course is an elective course in the Stanford Genetics and Genomics Certificate.
