Supported by the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine, Stem Cell Research at USC, The California Institute of Regenerative Medicine, and private philanthropy, the USC EiHS Program in Stem Cell Research is a science education and outreach program run in partnership with both private and public high schools in Los Angeles including Harvard-Westlake School, Milken Community High School, Life Line Charter School in Compton, the Bravo Medical Magnet School in East Los Angeles, and others.
Logging 40-hour weeks in the lab at USC's Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research, the students are from all walks of life.
"One of the best parts of our program is that it provides deserving students from lower income areas an opportunity they otherwise wouldn't have," said Broidy. "It's important to make sure every student gets a chance to make a difference."
The USC EiHS Program in Stem Cell Research will conduct on Friday, July 12, a USC Stem Cell Public Policy Education Forum in conjunction with the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine.
"State Senator Art Torres, CIRM Chairman John Thomas, Dr. Andy McMahon, and Dean Carmen A. Puliafito, MD have done a phenomenal job leading California in stem cell research," says Broidy. "Their vision and leadership is unparalleled. I am humbled to be a part of their team."
