The Center for Stem Cell and Developmental Biology (CSCDB) provides a platform for interactions between researchers interested in the biology of normal and aberrant (cancer) stem cells, regeneration and differentiation. The members of the center take diverse approaches toward a thorough understanding of stem cells, with an ultimate goal of therapeutic attack on cancers. These efforts are not limited to the 40-plus laboratories across 15 different departments of the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center, but are being coordinated across the Texas Medical Center to include researchers at Baylor College of Medicine and the Institute for Molecular Medicine, as a HouSTEM community.
How You Can Support the Center for Stem Cell and Developmental Biology
The Center for Stem Cell and Developmental Biology has three major goals: to understand how tumor-derived stem cells become aggressive cancers, to develop stem cells for use in regenerative therapies, and to determine basic mechanisms of differentiation and development.
Further research is needed to achieve these important goals. If you would like to support this research by a donation to our Center and the MD Anderson Cancer Center, please use the web-link below to do so:
