In 2013, businessman and philanthropist T. Denny Sanford committed $100 million to the creation of the Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center (Sanford Center) at UC San Diego. This gift established the Sanford Center, a $286 M program to accelerate development of drugs and cell therapies inspired by and derived from current human stem cell research. These advancements establish, promote and disseminate clinical trials and patient therapies that will help more quickly transform promise into reality.
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 all 9 Vice Chancellor areas: Academic Affairs; Research Affairs; Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion; Student Affairs; Marine Sciences; Health Sciences; Health System; Chief Financial Officer; Advancement; Resource Management and Planning.
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 $18M towards faculty start-up, retention, and research funds for 17 faculty members. Sanford Center also played a pivotal role in securing over $22M of grants from California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM), awarded respectively to dept. of Bioengineering, Pediatrics, Cellular & Molecular Medicine, and Sanford Center.
Sanford Center integrates its clinical operations at two UC San Diego medical centers - Jacobs Medical Center (JMC) and the Outpatient Pavilion (OPP) - encompassing 12 inpatient beds and outpatient exam rooms. We have contributed $7M towards the capital construction of JMC and OPP and are committed to another $5.5M towards the completion of these medical centers.
