Pathways to Stem Cell Science is the only private sector organization that provides professionally equipped wet-lab facilities for students and scientists at all stages. From young science fair researchers to established biotech companies, our state-of-the-art facilities will support your needs.
We take part in cutting-edge stem cell research, working collaboratively with industry and academic scientists from around the world. Our status as a non-profit allows us to provide comprehensive, low-cost support to universities, research institutes and biotech start-ups.
Originally founded at USC, our education programs have kick-started the careers of hundreds of aspiring scientists. We inspire, guide and prepare students of all ages, creating life-long bioscience learners with the skills and experiences needed to pursue professional bioscience careers.
Pathways to Stem Cell Science provides wet-lab facilities, research services and STEM education not offered anywhere else in the world today. We combine the quality of a university with the efficiency of a company to address unmet needs in stem cell science and regenerative medicine. Our professionally equipped facilities provide a central hub for scientists at all stages to explore their own research ideas. Our contract research services lower the barrier to working with stem cells, offering customized support for complex scientific projects. We inspire, guide and prepare K-12 students for future bioscience careers through a unique pipeline of real-world hands-on education programs. We also support public outreach and provide specialized industry training to college students and professional scientists.

"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. "
