Nova Southeastern University

Nova Southeastern University (NSU) is at the forefront of conducting pioneering biomedical research with the launch of its soon-to-be-completed, 215,000 sq. ft. Center for Collaborative Research (CCR), one of the largest and most advanced research facilities in Florida with state-of-the-art laboratories. The CCR will be home to a diverse group of accomplished physician-scientists and basic science researchers, representing many interdisciplinary sciences. As part of its bold new research mission, the university has launched the NSU Cell Therapy Institute, a unique collaboration with leading medical research scientists from Sweden’s world-renowned Karolinska Institutet (KI). KI is globally recognized for its Nobel Assembly, which awards the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine annually.

Mission: The NSU Cell Therapy Institute is dedicated to the discovery and development of innovative translational biomedical research, focused on the potential of cell-based therapies to prevent, treat and cure life-threatening and debilitating diseases. The Institute is accelerating the advancement of next-generation approaches to precision medicine such as targeted immunotherapy and regenerative medicine with an initial focus on treating cancers, heart disease and disorders causing blindness. The Institute is prioritizing establishing collaborations with other world-class universities, hospitals, research institutions and corporate partners.
