Elliott Broidy Expands Role in Los Angeles Civics with Support of Stem Cell Research Program
Date:7/19/2013

LOS ANGELES, July 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Elliott Broidy attended a conference on July 12 at the Eli and Edythe Broad Center aimed to dispel misconceptions and discussed advances in the burgeoning field of stem cell research. Another prominent topic of discussion was the newly formed Early Investigator High School Program (EIHS), which is designed to ensure the future of stem cell work with internships for high school students.

With the fledgling program facing constraints to admit qualified students of all economic backgrounds, the EIHS received a timely boost in support from a Los Angeles native attending the forum.

Philanthropist Elliott Broidy was in attendance to discuss the opportunities and challenges facing stem cell researchers. His attendance was preceded by the announcement that he will fund scholarships to enable gifted youth from disadvantaged situations to attend the summertime EIHS.

Elliott Broidy, Chairman and CEO of Broidy Capital Management, is a USC alumnus involved with various Los Angeles based charitable organizations. These groups include the Aviva Family and Children's Services, Simon Wiesenthal Center, Chai Lifeline, and the USC Marshall School of Business.

EIHS leadership hopes to make the nascent field of stem cell research accessible to all, according to a letter thanking forum attendees. The release touts that initial results indicate stem cell technologies have regenerative properties useful in developing cures to combat cardiovascular disease and cancer, among others.

The USC Keck School of Medicine plays host to EIHS interns at its Stem Cell Core facility, which is at the forefront of advancing research methods. The Medical School's Board has noted that responsibly tackling the political and ethical issues surrounding regenerative medicine is crucial to stem cell advancement.

These sentiments were echoed by investment manager Elliott Broidy in the wake of his scholarship contribution. He commented that the EIHS helps ensure a better future for all Los Angelenos.
