Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center (Sanford Center) is among the University’s most highly visible and top priority interdisciplinary and multi-institutional programs. Sanford Center provides essential physical and human resources needed to leverage stem cell research currently being conducted at UC San Diego. Due to the complexity of regenerative medicine projects and substantial institutional investment, on a daily basis Sanford Center personnel works with a large variety of departments in Health Sciences, Health System, and the school of engineering.
As part of UC San Diego Health, Sanford Center motivates University-wide change and sustainability, focusing on creating the structure under which various innovative regenerative medicine units and initiatives are developed. Sanford Center has led several successful and highly visible interdisciplinary faculty recruitments, committing to over $40M towards faculty start-up, retention, and research funds for over 25 faculty members. Sanford Center also played a pivotal role in securing over $71M of grants from California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM), awarded respectively to dept. of Bioengineering, Pediatrics, Cellular & Molecular Medicine, Medicine, Neurosciences, and Sanford Center.
Sanford Center integrates its clinical operations at two UC San Diego medical centers - Jacobs Medical Center (JMC) and the Koman Outpatient Pavilion (KOP) - encompassing 12 inpatient beds and outpatient exam rooms. We have contributed $12.5M towards the capital construction of JMC and KOP. Sanford Center is also a significant contributor ($3M) to the expansion and operations of UC San Diego’s GMP facility - Advanced Cell Therapy Laboratory (ACTL), located at 10300 Campus Point Dr, San Diego, CA 92121. The ACTL consists of two ISO 7 clean rooms and a laboratory, occupying 1675 sqft. In addition, through its basic science arm - UCSD Stem Cell Program - Sanford Center provides needed resources and coordination to research conducted at the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine - an innovative "collaboratory" of San Diego scientists from five major stem cell research institutions: UC San Diego, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, Salk Institute for Biological Studies, Scripps Research Institute, and La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology.
