About the Gates Center for Regenerative Medicine

Prior to his death in 2005, Denver industrialist and philanthropist Charles Gates began talking to his children about the hope and benefit stem cell research promised for so many people in the world.

Established in 2006 with a generous gift in his memory, the Charles C. Gates “Program” and now “Center” for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Biology aspires to honor what Charles Gates envisioned—by doing everything possible to support the collaboration between basic scientific researchers and clinical faculty to transition scientific breakthroughs into clinical practice as quickly as possible.

Our comprehensive Center is open to all investigators within the University of Colorado system and beyond who are interested in stem cell research, including members affiliated with both the UC Anschutz Medical and Boulder campuses, Colorado State University, and the Colorado School of Mines.

Our Center is housed on the 8th floor of the Research Complex I on the Anschutz Medical Campus, the largest, new biomedical and clinical campus in the United States.
