Stem Cells In the News

Based on their promise, stem cells have taken center stage in global news. This has occurred, in large part, because of the tremendous potential of stem cells to treat many life-altering or life-threatening disorders that are difficult or impossible to treat with current technology.

The purpose of this section of our web site is to provide further information regarding stem cell research and clinical news and its forthcoming applications to patients. We hope you find this site informative and helpful.
