The NYSCF – Robertson Stem Cell Prize is awarded annually to an outstanding young stem cell scientist in recognition of significant and pathbreaking translational stem cell research.
Doctor Takahashi helped pioneer a new stem cell technique for turning adult stem cells into embryonic-like stem cells in the laboratory of 2012 Nobel Prize winner Shinya Yamanaka.
NYSCF honored three Stem Cell Heroes making an impact on the field right now: Bonnie Pfeifer Evans and Alice Shure of the Charles Evans Foundation, founding supporters of the NYSCF Initiative to Cure Alzheimer's Disease, and Seun Adebiyi, an aspiring Olympian and founder of Bone Marrow Registry Nigeria, the country's first bone marrow registry. Each discusses how disease and stem cells have impacted his or her life in this short film.
At TEDGlobal 2012 in Edinburgh, Scotland, Susan Solomon unveiled a breakthrough development from NYSCF Research Institute scientists that could help revolutionize how disease is treated.
In her talk, Susan revealed that NYSCF has developed the technology to produce an array of stem cell lines to reflect the genetic diversity of our population. This will provide the scientific, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical communities with a powerful “tool kit” to anticipate how people respond to different drugs.
This panel of leading stem cell scientists and patient advocates provided the straight scoop on the latest developments in the stem cell field and explained why there is so much at stake for us all. Excerpts from current films helped illustrate the urgency of this research.
NYSCF has helped to create a video on stem cell research playing in the Hall of Human Origins at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. It portrays the promise of stem cell therapies for human disease and demonstrates the potential of the research to create opportunities for studying disease fundamentals.
The New York Stem Cell Foundation and the 92nd Street Y presented a panel discussion entitled: Stem Cell Research: The Way Forward.
The New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) held its seventh annual spring public outreach event to bring together global experts on heart disease, bioethics, and stem cell research to discuss current efforts to apply stem cell breakthroughs in the treatment of cardiac disease.
