Elliott Broidy Provides Scholarships to Further Stem Cell Research

Elliott Broidy is taking a local approach to ensuring the future of an international issue. The philanthropist recently sponsored bright students from across his native Los Angeles to attend a summer camp that conducts stem cell research.
    LOS ANGELES, CA, July 03, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dubbed the 'Early Investigator High School' program (EIHS), young minds converged on the USC Keck School of Medicine in the summer of 2013. Broidy commented the scholarships were meant to give deserving minds an opportunity regardless of income or background.

As the first anniversary of the landmark camp approached, the USC alum noted EIHS has benefits for all of society. He stressed the potential of stem cells continues to improve medical research for individuals across barriers.

Aside from work experience, EIHS provides academic planning so students can choose the best courses to prepare for the admissions process. The summer camp also builds a foundation for the next generation of stem cell scientists. With the general decline of student interest in math and science; EIHS helps ensure that stem cell research has the manpower to expand.

Regenerative medicine holds promise for various conditions, such as cancer and birth defects. The underlying causes of many diseases start at the cellular level, where typical cells do not develop (differentiate) properly. Scientists are studying how a broad group of stem cells transform into specialized groups that serve particular functions.

The EIHS program reflects the diversity of people that stem cells can benefit. Executive Producer Elliott Broidy is among several private donors who see the potential that stem cell research offers. This includes academic opportunity for gifted minds across Los Angeles.
