Southern California institutions to collaborate on stem cell research
Date:11/28/2007

LOS ANGELES, November 29, 2007 - Research institutions across Southern California have joined forces to advance stem cell research by establishing the Southern California Stem Cell Scientific Collaboration (SC3). Members of the collaboration include the University of Southern California, Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, City of Hope, University of California, Santa Barbara, California Institute of Technology and the House Ear Institute.

"The potential applications for stem cell research in medicine are enormous," says Martin Pera, Ph.D., director of USC's Center for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine. "Tackling these complex problems requires scientists with diverse expertise. We are delighted to have an opportunity to work with such an outstanding collection of scientists to really accelerate the pace of discovery and translational research in regenerative medicine."

Through grants from organizations such as the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) and the National Institutes of Health, SC3 members have a long history of partnering on various research projects. The new agreement is a major step forward in supporting potential significant stem cell findings by allowing members to share training programs, scientific core facilities and expertise, and to team up on a wide range of research programs.

"For patients and their families, cures for cancer, HIV/AIDS and other diseases cannot come soon enough," says Michael A. Friedman, M.D., president and chief executive officer, City of Hope. "As an institution, City of Hope is working to speed advances in medical science to improve and save lives. We believe the SC3 collaboration provides a critical mass of expertise that will create new knowledge and significantly accelerate treatments for diseases that impact so many."

"Stem cell research is vibrant at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles because of the long-term, commitment of our hospital to support high quality r
