Neural Stem Cell Institute
Our Unique Organization
The Neural Stem Cell Institute (NSCI) is dedicated to developing regenerative stem cell therapies for various diseases of the central nervous system (CNS): the brain, spinal cord and retina, regardless of the cause of injury. Led by MacArthur “Genius” Award winner Dr. Sally Temple who helped discover and define nervous system stem cells, NSCI is the first independent, non-profit stem cell research institute in the USA.
With a state of the art laboratory fully equipped to generate breakthrough discoveries, NSCI employs more than 25 leading stem cell researchers who take a multi-disciplinary approach to neural stem cell research.
In addition to in-house research, NSCI provides other leading neural stem cell researchers from around the world the funding, know-how, and access to international partnerships to expedite the translation of their discovery into real-world therapies for CNS repair.
