CWRU receives $5 million from Ohio Third Frontier Commission
Date:6/25/2009

r a prolonged period of time to tell the patient's cells to create cartilage.

  • Bruce Trapp (CC) and Vertex Pharmaceuticals of Cambridge, MA have identified a cell in the adult human brain and will evaluate its potential to treat a variety of neurodegenerative diseases and spinal cord injury.

    Pilot programs

    The pilot projects represent early stage, cutting edge scientific projects that were developed in the Center. While these projects are at an early stage, they were selected based upon their significance to the field and their potential economic impact if successfully matured. Funding for the three projects will be accompanied by a subset of eight new pilot projects determined through review by CSCRM oversight committees.

    • Paul Tesar (CWRU), Horst von Recum (CWRU) and Jeremy Rich (CC) will establish a Pluripotent Stem Cell Facility within CWRU and CC which will be the first of its kind in the State of Ohio.

    • Cell Targeting will apply its cell "painting" technology to direct umbilical cord blood stem cells to specific locations in the body to increase cell dosage and improve engraftment.

    • Zhenghong Lee (UHCMC) and Jeremy Rich (CC) will collaborate to develop a method to non-invasively image cancer stem cells through the development of radiolabeled tracers.

    The CSCRM Administration, led by Debra Grega and Michael Gilkey, is responsible for coordinating, accounting and reporting on all of these projects, continuing and creating education programs on stem cells and regenerative medicine for middle school through graduate level students, executing a biennial international stem cell conference (MSC 2009), interfacing and cultivating new commercial interactions, developing new research collaborations within the State as well as internationally, and representing the Center in scientific conferences and public events.
