COLUMBIA, Md., Jan. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Maryland Stem Cell Research Commission (Commission) has announced a new program for pre-clinical and clinical research grants.

The Commission has issued a new request for Applications (RFA), RFA-MD-12-4, soliciting proposals for this program.

"In Maryland, we stand on the cutting edge of technology and innovation," said Governor O'Malley. "To grow Maryland's biotech and life sciences assets, this session, we are proposing $10.4 million to continue the State's investment in Stem Cell Research. I am pleased that the Maryland Stem Cell Research Commission will help our State continue to create jobs and tap into science and discovery. Together, with business and government partners alike, we can continue to make critical investments in the way we feed, fuel and heal our world."

Established under the Maryland Stem Cell Research Act of 2006, the Maryland Stem Cell Research Fund (MSCRF) supports all types of human stem cell research in the State of Maryland. In response to the three RFAs previously issued for the current funding cycle, the Commission has received 179 research applications: 30 Investigator-Initiated, 105 Exploratory and 44 Post-Doctoral Fellowships proposals, maintaining a continued high level of interest from the scientific community. The new RFA was created to accelerate the pace of stem cell research in Maryland and to continue to return the State's investment by stimulating the local economy.
