Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine

About the Institute

The Ruth L. and David S. Gottesman Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine was created following a large philanthropic gift from the Gottesman family to provide individual investigators and multidisciplinary teams with the resources needed to realize the promise of this emerging field. Allen M. Spiegel, M.D., the Marilyn and Stanley M. Katz Dean, and faculty of Albert Einstein College of Medicine has designated space on the first floor of the Michael F. Price Center for Genetic and Translational Medicine and Harold and Muriel Block Research Pavilion, and renovated space in other buildings (Chanin, Ullmann, Kennedy) to establish an institute that would set the standard in stem cell research and regenerative medicine, nationally and internationally.

The Institute’s mission is: i) to advance the scientific knowledge in stem cell biology and breakthroughs in regenerative medicine through faculty interactions, research support and education; ii) to foster collaborations and innovations by bridging scientific fields and overcome natural departmental barriers; iii) to translate basic science discoveries into novel stem cell-based therapies that impact clinical care.

The Institute is building upon Einstein’s considerable strengths in human embryonic stem cell research and hematopoietic-, cancer-, and liver-directed cell therapy, as well as upon related research efforts in cardiovascular disease, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, and neuropsychiatric disease. Stem cell research at Einstein also benefits from the College of Medicine’s long-standing commitment to research with model organisms, including C. elegans, Drosophila, zebrafish, and mice.
