Medical research has always extended far beyond the doors of biology labs and it truly requires a community effort to produce new treatments for human illness. What makes stem cell research so exciting is its incredible potential to help people. So many diseases are complex in origin, but are due to a defect in a single cell type. Diseases like heart failure, diabetes, Parkinson’s and others have key individual cell types that are deficient. Harnessing the power of stem cells by either medications to stimulate regeneration or by cell transplantation is the promise of stem cell research. Delivering on that promise is the goal of this center: bold and expansive, yet even a modest success could fundamentally change the lives of those affected by these diseases. Nothing could be more challenging, nor more rewarding.
It is our hope that you will consider joining us and contributing to the successes of stem cell research.
The participation of educators, legislators, corporations, foundations, families, and individuals is essential to the operation of today’s stem cell research. While financial support is but one component that enables us to progress towards our goals, the generosity of people like you
is necessary to make the achievements at the CRM possible.
