NYSCF Press Releases
Announced today, the New York Stem Cell Foundation is now an associate member of the New York Genome Center (NYGC) joining NYGC’s growing consortium of 16 research and clinical institutions working towards utilizing genomic data to better treat and cure disease. This collaboration merges NYSCF’s cutting-edge capabilities in human stem…
In a first for the field, NYSCF scientists with Columbia University's Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center  researchers have generated patient-specific beta cells, or insulin-producing cells, that accurately reflect a genetic form of diabetes known as maturity onset diabetes of the young (MODY). This incurable disease, caused by a genetic mutation, is…
In a step towards personalized bone grafts to treat traumatic injury or congenital defects, a study, led by Darja Marolt, PhD, and Giuseppe Maria de Peppo, PhD, and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, reports the generation of patient-specific bone substitutes from skin cells for repair of large bone defects. This…
The New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) was a principle supporter of a new study published today in Cell Stem Cell that employed a novel stem cell-based screening method to identify a promising chemical compound for Lou Gehrig’s disease, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). NYSCF Scientific Advisor and Medical Advisory…
Dr. Scott Noggle, Director of the NYSCF Lab and the NYSCF – Charles Evans Senior Research Fellow for Alzheimer's Disease, and his research team are collaborating with leading stem cell experts and Alzheimer’s disease researchers on the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund Stem Cell Consortium. Capitalizing on The NYSCF Global Stem Cell…
NYSCF scientist Mike Nestor, PhD, with a team of fellow NYSCF researchers developed a new technique that enables scientists to better image living neurons made from stem cells. Reported in Stem Cell Research, the NYSCF team detailed this method that allows scientists to measure electrical recordings and take live-cell images…
A team of New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) Research Institute scientists led by David Kahler, PhD, NYSCF Director of Laboratory Automation, have developed a new way to generate induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell lines from human skin cells, from both healthy and diseased donors. Reported in PLOS ONE, this…
The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) has advised the British government on an advanced form of IVF that prevents mitochondrial disease in eggs or embryos, a technique refined by NYSCF researchers. Following a public discussion and a call for scientific evidence, the HFEA found the UK public generally supportive…
NYSCF – Robertson Investigator Ed Boyden, PhD, and Benesse Career Development Professor and associate professor of biological engineering and brain and cognitive sciences at MIT was awarded the 2013 Grete Lundbeck European Brain Research Prize for his pioneering work in the field of optogenetics. He shares this prestigious 1 million-euro…
On December 4, NYSCF CEO Susan L. Solomon was honored at the World Stem Cell Summit with the 2012 Stem Cell Action Leadership Award. Annually since 2005, the Genetics Policy Institute has recognized the achievements of scientists, activists, organizations, and philanthropists who have contributed to stem cell research. Past awardees…
