We take part in cutting-edge stem cell research, working collaboratively with scientists in industry and academia from around the world. Our status as a non-profit allows us to provide comprehensive, low-cost support to other non-profits like universities and small research institutes.
Originally founded at USC, Pathways to Stem Cell Science’s education programs have become known nationally as the career kick-starter for aspiring young scientists. We now inspire, guide and prepare students of all ages, enabling them to tackle the “skills-gap” and prepare for professional bioscience careers.
We believe that all students deserve the chance to develop successful bioscience careers and happy lives regardless of their ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or socioeconomic status. Our educational mission requires the generous support of individual donors and corporate sponsors.
We promote the advancement of stem cell science and regenerative medicine through the combined provision of contract research services and educational programs. Our research services lower the barrier to working with stem cells by providing cost-effective support for customized scientific projects. Our real-world education programs enable students of all ages, Pre-K to 12 and college to work hands-on with stem cells, providing the skills, inspiration, career education and professional experiences needed to forge successful bioscience careers. We also support public outreach and provide specialized industry training to professional scientists.
We provide real-world training and education in core skills and techniques required by all professional bioscience industries.
We help students to focus their career interest, make better choices about their education and prepare for their future careers.
We provide real-world exposure to professional scientists, research laboratories, state of the art equipment and bioscience techniques.
We provide unique training and education through innovative laboratory-based courses involving human stem cells.
We prepare students with specialized skills for the rapidly growing, cutting-edge fields of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine.
Located in a biotech incubator, we are one of the only industry-based programs for K-12 and college students in the world.
Our programs promote the development of important social, professional and interpersonal skills.
We inspire, support and enable underserved students to pursue professional bioscience training and employment.
We offer educational opportunities for students of all social, ethnic, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Our high school programs prepare future scientists with the real-world skills, career education and professional mentorship needed to develop a viable career path, plan for college and compete for work-place internships.
Pathways to Stem Cell Science is a leading provider of technical training for college students and the CIRM Bridges to Stem Cell Research Program.
"Dr. Fox and her team have put together an incredible program that offers high school students an unparalleled opportunity to be involved in significant, cutting-edge work. Our son’s experience was transformative. He not only learned valuable laboratory research skills—he gained a true appreciation for the importance of collaboration in research and its enormous potential to save lives, and he is now inspired to do more"
"Young people learn science best by doing science; there is no substitute for authentic research. In 2012 we felt honored and privileged to help shape the Stem Cell Research Internship Program, and to send a few Harvard-Westlake aspiring scientists to the inaugural summer session. During the ensuing summers, many of our students have participated in stem cell research through Pathways to Stem Cell Sciences programs, and for every one of them it was a transformative experience."
"The excitement and encouragement that comes from being part of hands-on scientific research is an overwhelming experience for my students. My students have definitely been inspired by the (EiHS) Stem Cell Research Internship Program and most of the parents at our school are also excited about the opportunity. All of the Lifeline students that have graduated from the program have been inspired to attend a university or college."
"Pathways is transforming the inner city youth through its two-week program, which enables all students, regardless of socioeconomic considerations, to create beating cardiac tissue. And the eight-week Research Internship Program not only creates future scientists, but also motivates those students in their application to the finest universities in the country. In the premier state for Stem Cell research, Pathways to Stem Cell Science is now the authority and premier brand in stem cell education. For our family: philanthropy well spent."
"The (EiHS) Stem Cell Research Internship Program enables a group of very well-rounded high school students to have the opportunity to be part of a research team investigating new issues in science. Personally, I believe that it was a fascinating once-in-a-lifetime opportunity which changed my life for the better. During the first week of training in the Stem Cell Core facility we were introduced to different techniques and procedures that will helps us through the course. "
