STaR Center

STaR Center logoWelcome to the Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine Center of Baylor College of Medicine. Investigators in the STaR Center study both adult stem cells and embryonic stem cells. Some of our investigators are also investigating the role of tumor stem cells in contributing to cancer relapse.

We are interested in fundamental questions, such as understanding how stem cells are stimulated to regenerate tissues, and also practical issues, such as how to use stem cells to repair a patient's damaged tissue.
