Black Family Stem Cell Institute

The Black Family Stem Cell Institute serves as the central node for the many studies on stem cell biology and regenerative medicine taking place across the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Our research focuses on embryonic and adult stem cells, with the overall goal of furthering advancements in regenerative medicine. As we lay the scientific groundwork for understanding and manipulating stem cell behavior, we are also developing sophisticated strategies for modeling and treating diseases ranging from skin cancer to neurodegeneration. We invite you to explore our research, programs, and faculty, and to support our work.
