Special Event: What You Need to Know About the Promise of Stem Cells
How close are we to cures, and how are stem cells transforming human health?
Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, PTSD, cancer: all diseases that are still, to this day, largely a mystery, with scarce therapeutic options for patients.
Thanks to the exponential progress of stem cell research over the last two decades, we now have breathtaking data and revolutionary tools to show that new treatment options for these diseases, along with countless others, could reach patients sooner than you think.
In this crash course for audience members of all ages, NYSCF’s Dr. Daniel Paull will explain the fundamentals of stem cells and share the latest advances that are making their way to patients. There will be time at the end for Q&A.
Daniel Paull, PhD
Senior Vice President of Discovery and Platform Development
The NYSCF Research Institute
Dr. Paull oversees the NYSCF Global Stem Cell Array® team and works on a variety of diseases including rare diseases. Dr. Paull received his PhD in Ophthalmology and Cell Biology from University College London, England, and performed his postdoctoral work in the lab of Dr. Dieter Egli at NYSCF. In the latter role, he laid the groundwork for developing the NYSCF automation systems by gaining a firm understanding of how to create stem cells and turn them into the other cell types of the body.
