It takes more than materials and methods to be a successful young scientist — it also takes means. With this in mind, the Hearst Foundations have given a gift of $300,000 to support exceptional junior postdoctoral fellows pursuing stem cell research at USC.

“Being able to support the stem cell fellows at USC is a necessary and vital step in advancing stem cell research and regenerative medicine. The Hearst Foundations are very excited to support these efforts at the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC,” said Paul “Dino” Dinowitz, executive director of the Hearst Foundations.

Held at Aresty Auditorium at the Keck School of Medicine of USC, the event was hosted by USC Stem Cell (stemcell.usc.edu), a collaborative and multidisciplinary effort bringing together more than 100 researchers and clinicians working to translate discoveries into cures.
