Stem Cell Research Graduate Studies

There are a variety of opportunities for graduate students to conduct stem cell studies at Colorado State University. For translational studies, the greatest opportunities are found in the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, especially in the Department of Clinical Sciences. Here, faculty researchers in the Equine Orthopaedic Research Center conduct mesenchymal stem cell studies in horses with joint and ligament injuries. In addition, faculty and clinicians in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital are investigating the use of MSC for treatment of dogs with bone cancer and joint injuries. Other investigators are conducting MSC research in cats with asthma and also in cats with chronic kidney disease.
A list of faculty conducting stem cell research in the CVMBS and their specific research interests is included on this website on the CIRM Faculty Page. In addition, stem cell research opportunities exist in the Department of Biomedical Sciences and in other departments at Colorado State University, including in the School of Biomedical Engineering, College of Engineering.
At present, a formal stem cell curriculum and program of study for graduate students has not been established at CSU, but there are plans to develop a Stem Cell Biology program within CVMBS as research interest in this field grows.
