(CIRM) Center of Excellence in Stem Cell Genomics (CESCG)
UC Santa Cruz runs the Data Coordination and Management program for the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) Center of Excellence in Stem Cell Genomics. The center applies genomics to stem cell research to gain a deeper understanding of the disease processes in cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and mental health. This understanding can ultimately lead to safer, more effective ways of using stem cells in medical research and therapy.
