Stephen Epstein, MD To Head Scientific & Medical Advisory Board For Stemedica’s Cardiology Division
Date:3/4/2013

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 04, 2013

Stemedica Cell Technologies, Inc., a leader in adult allogeneic stem cell manufacturing, research and development, announced today that cardiologist Stephen E. Epstein, MD, Director of Translational Research of the MedStar Heart Institute, Washington Hospital Center, has accepted the position of Chairman of Stemedica’s Scientific and Medical Advisory Board for the Company’s Cardiology Division. Dr. Epstein served for over 30 years as Chief of the Cardiology Branch of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) in Bethesda, Maryland.

With more than 500 publications in peer-reviewed medical journals, Dr. Epstein is a recognized international authority on angiogenesis and the role of infection in atherosclerosis. He and his colleagues recently developed stem cell strategies for enhancing collateral development (new blood vessel growth) and are currently focused on understanding and treating cardiovascular disease at the molecular level by identifying the molecular mechanisms responsible for development of vulnerable plaques. These efforts have included examining possible genetic polymorphisms and of circulating biomarkers as indicators that a given patient is at risk of plaque rupture. Dr. Epstein has also explored how aging leads to collateral dysfunction and the related molecular mechanisms. One of Dr. Epstein’s current primary areas of interest is the role of stress in predisposing to myocardial infarction, and the contributing epigenetic mechanisms.

His research in gene therapy and the use of stem cells in cardiovascular disease has led to two important NHLBI committee appointments. Dr. Epstein is currently Vice-Chairman of the Data Safety Management Board (DSMB) for Programs of Excellence in Gene and Cell Ther
