NEW YORK, March 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NeoStem, Inc. (Amex: NBS), which is pioneering the pre-disease collection, processing and long-term storage of adult stem cells for future medical need, today announced that Denis Rodgerson, Ph.D., NeoStem's Director of Stem Cell Science will lecture at The University of Nevada Las Vegas campus this evening. In October 2007, NeoStem announced the expansion of its network of adult stem cell collection centers into Las Vegas, the first in the region.

Dr. Rodgerson's lecture, entitled, "Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine: Past, Present & Future," will address the evolving nature of stem cell research and applications as well as NeoStem's proprietary Very Small Embryonic Like Stem Cells (VSELs) technology and its potential role in the market.

Dr. Rodgerson has published more than 150 articles in medical and scientific literature and is the holder of several patents. He is an inventor of the proprietary process that serves as the basis for NeoStem's platform stem cell collection business and was the founder of NeoStem's predecessor company. He has been a consultant to many institutions and corporations, including NASA, National Bureau of Standards, Hewlett Packard, and Beckman Instruments. Prior to founding NeoStem, Dr. Rodgerson founded StemCyte, Inc., an umbilical cord blood banking company, where he served as Chief Operating Officer and Senior Vice President until 2002. He is also Professor Emeritus of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the UCLA School of Medicine.

About NeoStem, Inc.

NeoStem is managing a growing nationwide network of adult stem cell collection centers, enabling people to donate and store their own (autologous) stem cells when they are young and healthy for their personal use in times of future medical need. The Company has also recently entered the research and development and therapeutic arenas, through the acquisition of a worldwide exclusive license to an early-stage technology to identify and isolate rare stem cells from adult human bone marrow, called VSELs (very small embryonic- like stem cells), which have been shown to have several physical characteristics that are generally found in embryonic stem cells.
