CORD:USE Cord Blood Bank Announces the Addition of Dr. John Wagner, a Pioneer in the Use of Umbilical Cord Blood Stem Cells, to Its Scientific Advisory Board
Date:1/30/2008

ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- John Wagner, M.D., recognized as a leader in the field of cord blood stem cell transplantation, has joined the team at CORD:USE Cord Blood Bank. Dr. Wagner's extensive experience and knowledge in transplant medicine and stem cell biology will provide a significant contribution to CORD:USE.

"We're honored and fortunate to have him as a member of our distinguished team," says Edward Guindi, M.D., President and CEO of CORD:USE Cord Blood Bank.

Dr. Wagner is internationally recognized as an expert in the field of stem cells and use of unrelated hematopoietic stem cell transplant. He is a professor of Pediatrics and the Director of the Division of Hematology- Oncology and Blood and Marrow Transplantation at the University of Minnesota. He is also the Scientific Director of Clinical Research of the Stem Cell Institute and Director of the Center of Molecular and Cellular Therapeutics.

Dr. Wagner has played a considerable role in the development and expansion of the applications of cord blood stem cells. His investigations on the simultaneous use of two cord blood units for transplantation in adults has made it possible for nearly all patients to benefit from cord blood stem cell transplantation who otherwise would not have been candidates for this therapy.

"Without question, I look forward to working with such a distinguished board of scientific advisors and the impressive team at CORD:USE," says Dr. Wagner. "Cord blood stem cells have already played an extremely important role in the treatment of thousands of patients, and I foresee the uses of cord blood expanding, such as in the field of regenerative medicine and tissue repair. The experience and expertise of the team at CORD:USE will help ensure that CORD:USE remains a leader in the field."

Dr. Wagner joins other highly-respected leaders in the field of cord blood stem cell transplantation at CORD:USE. Dr. Joanne Kurtzberg is the Director
