NEW YORK, Jan. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- StemSave, the market leader in the field of dental stem cell recovery and cryo-preservation, today announced Dr. George T.-J. Huang, DDS, MSD, DSc, the Chair and Herbert Schilder Professor in Endodontics and Director of the Postgraduate Program in Endodontics of Boston University's Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine, joined its Science Advisory Council. Dr. Huang will support and advise StemSave as it continues to expand its easy-to-use stem cell banking technology that lets people store stem cells collected from their own teeth as part of a routine visit to the dentist's office.
"Dr. Huang is a preeminent member of the dental stem cell research community and his work around tissue regeneration is changing the way we think about dentistry. His expertise will play a critical role in our continued growth and we are very fortunate to have him on board," says Art Greco, CEO of StemSave.
Dr. Huang has published more than 100 research articles, review articles, book chapters and abstracts on stem cell development and regenerative medicine. His research focuses on using dental stem cells to advance regenerative medicine, in particular the use of dental stem cells to create iPS cell lines as well as the regeneration of dental tissues such as dental pulp, dentin and periodontal ligament.
"Stem cell based tissue regeneration is going to play an increasingly more vital role in the medical health and treatments of people today. StemSave understands that to take full advantage of these medical breakthroughs, people need an easy way to bank their stem cells at any time in life – and it doesn't get easier than a routine trip to the dentist's office," says Dr. Huang.
Dr. Huang joins Dr. Jeremy J. Mao, DDS, PhD; Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic, PhD; and David A Matzilevich, MD, PhD on the StemSave advisory council.
