Using stem cells to treat human diseases provides much promise and hope. We are pursuing this research with the goal of developing cures for diseases where there are few treatments at present. Our scientists are presently conducting research with adult, embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells and continue to make great strides closer to the clinic in areas of heart regeneration, muscular dystrophy, cancer, diabetes, spinal cord regeneration and therapeutics.
