NYSCF Press Releases
For the first time, NYSCF scientists generated induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells lines from skin samples of patients with primary progressive multiple sclerosis and further, they developed an accelerated protocol to induce these stem cells into becoming oligodendrocytes, the myelin-forming cells of the central nervous system implicated in multiple sclerosis…
NYSCF and Beyond Batten Disease Foundation (BBDF) are partnering to develop stem cell resources to investigate and explore new treatments and, ultimately, find a cure for juvenile Batten disease, a fatal illness affecting children. NYSCF scientists will create induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell lines from skin samples of young people affected…
Recognizing the enormous research potential of shared iPS cell lines, the NYSCF Research Institute and eagle-i Network are partnering to make NYSCF iPS cell lines and related information available to the public on a user-friendly, web-based, searchable database. The database (called the Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell database) will help scientists find…
A team of scientists led by the NYSCF Research Institute's Dr. Dieter Egli report the first ever patient-specific, diploid (i.e. with two sets of chromosomes, the normal number in human cells) embryonic stem cell line created from an adult with type 1 diabetes using somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT). Furthermore,…
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…
