ohnson, MD, president and CEO of Scintellix and executive vice president and chief medical officer at Entegrion, and Linda Powers, co-founder and managing director of Toucan Capital, which manages a portfolio that includes 16 stem cell or regenerative medicine companies.

"The 2009 Lasker Awards for basic and clinical research underscore the enormous impact that scientific research and translational medicine will have on human health," said John Sterling, Editor in Chief of GEN. "In the areas of embryonic and adult stem cells, this international recognition of the implications for nuclear reprogramming techniques and the ability to produce stem cells capable of regenerating tissues and organs damaged by disease, trauma, or age, will ignite new research ventures and collaborative partnerships and spark investment across the life sciences sector."

"Both embryonic and adult stem cells offer enormous promise for new treatments and cures," said Mary Ann Liebert, president and CEO of Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. "It is urgent that any health care reform policy ensures coverage for stem cell therapies, gene therapies, tissue engineering, and other regenerative therapeutics and technologies," she said.
