Founded in 2016, Pathways to Stem Cell Science is a biotech-based, non-profit research and education organization located in Los Angeles, California. Our mission is to support the advancement of stem cell science and create real-world pathways to bioscience careers. We achieve these goals through the combined provision of laboratory facilities, contract research services and hands-on education programs.


Pathways to Stem Cell Science offers professionally equipped wet-lab facilities for scientists at all stages from science fair enthusiasts to established biotech companies.  We are one of the only private sector organizations in the world with dedicated laboratory space for teaching, professional research and community science projects.  Located in Torrance California, our facilities provide a collaborative environment for promoting research innovation and training the next generation of scientists.


Our broad scientific mission is to advance stem cell science and regenerative medicine by lowering the barriers to working with stem cells. Our internal R&D program focuses on developing improved, cost-effective, labor-effective bioprocesses and technologies.

We take part in cutting-edge stem cell research, working collaboratively with industry and academic scientists from around the world. Our novel status as a non-profit CRO allows us to provide comprehensive, low-cost support to emerging companies and non-profit research organizations.

We provide a variety of custom research services including cell line development, cell line characterization, cell banking, stem cell differentiation, exosome isolation and assay development. We also provide support with planning and managing wet-lab facilities and cell culture operations.


At Pathways to Stem Cell Science we offer a unique pipeline of hands-on bioscience education programs for students at every educational stage from preschool to college. Our programs provide aspiring scientists with the motivation, real-world training, professional mentorship and career education needed to thrive in school, college and employment.


Our educational mission is to inspire, guide and prepare students for future bioscience careers. We also support work-force development and the continuing education of professional scientists through specialized industry-level training programs.
