NYSCF Press Releases
Dr. Mahendra Rao joins The New York Stem Cell Foundation Research Institute as the Vice President for Regenerative Medicine. Dr. Rao brings decades of experience in stem cell science and business development to NYSCF's mission to translate stem cell research into cures.  Dr. Rao, who holds an MD degree and…
NYSCF scientists, in collaboration with scientists from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, successfully created and used a stem cell model of familial Alzheimer's disease to identify fourteen genes that may be implicated in the disease. One of the genes found in the study is related to inflammation…
NYSCF scientists, in collaboration with scientists from Columbia University Medical Center, successfully generated induced pluripotent stem cells and, subsequently, neurons from non-cryoprotected biobanked brain tissue of Alzheimer's patients and patients suffering from other neurologic diseases.  This scientific first will allow researchers to “turn back the clock” and observe how Alzheimer’s develops…
This exciting new collaboration combines NYSCF's stem cell expertise with Personalgenomes.org's detalied genetic and medical data to create a new and powerful tool to research disease causes and traits.  NYSCF scientists will make induced pluripotent stem cell lines from skin samples of participants in the Harvard Personal Genome Project (PGP),…
NYSCF announced an exciting new collaboration with the National Institutes of Health Undiagnosed Disease Program (UDP) that will lead to new strategies to find cures and treatments for countless undiagnosed and rare diseases. NYSCF scientists will make stem cell lines from skin samples of patients participating in the UDP whose…
NYSCF scientists published a paper today in the journal Diabetes on a breakthrough in diabetes research that could lead to new therapeutic approaches for patients with a rare and often lethal form of diabetes, Wolfram syndrome, and which may also be applicable to all types of diabetes.   NYSCF scientists Linshan…
At NYSCF's Eighth Annual Translational Stem Cell Research Conference, the CEO of the New York Stem Cell Foundation, Susan Solomon, and the CEO of The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF), Todd Sherer, PhD, announced an exciting new partnership. The collaboration is between NYSCF and the Parkinson's Patient Marker Initiative (PPMI),…
The New York Stem Cell Foundation Awarded Amy Wagers, PhD, with the NYSCF – Robertson Stem Cell Prize for her breakthrough research achievements defining the regenerative potential of blood and muscle-forming stem cells.  Dr. Wagers is the Forst Family Professor of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology at Harvard University and an Early…
The New York Stem Cell Foundation named seven of the most promising scientists in the world as its 2013 NYSCF – Robertson Investigators.  Each Investigator will receive a $1.5 million award disbursed over the next five years to foster his or her innovative research.  Three of the scientists were named NYSCF – Robertson Stem…
Announced today, NYSCF will be the lead stem cell partner in an Alzheimer's consortia with scientists at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and other institutions.  This multi-year study will focus on applying innovative analytical methods to large-scale molecular, cellular, and clinical data to construct biological network models and…
