Junying Yu, Leading Stem Cell Researcher, Joins Cellular Dynamics International
Date:7/22/2009

MADISON, Wis., July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Cellular Dynamics International (CDI) announced today the appointment of Junying Yu, Ph.D., as senior research fellow. Her significant body of published research has shown her to be one of the leading stem cell researchers in the world. Dr. Yu's scientific leadership will help to accelerate the company's efforts toward harnessing the power of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells to reproducibly differentiate into essential cell types for drug discovery and development and eventually therapeutic use.

The appointment reflects the rapid progress CDI is making in developing commercially available terminal cells (e.g. heart, blood, neural cells, etc.) derived from iPS cells for drug development. This progress has been highlighted by the recent announcements of two strategic technology in-license arrangements with Mount Sinai School of Medicine and Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and the company's recent announcement of the generation of iPS cells from normal human blood.

"Dr. Yu strengthens CDI's scientific team and our ability to exploit our growing patent portfolio," said Chris Kendrick-Parker, CDI's Chief Commercial Officer. "Junying is one of the top stem cell researchers in the world, and with her on our team we feel confident that we will be able to provide additional, much needed stem cell research tools and therapies to the preclinical, and eventually clinical, market faster."
