Madison, Wis. - It's not too early to gauge the level of investor interest in Stemina Biomarker Discovery, Inc., a new company formed by Beth Donley and University of Wisconsin-Madison stem cell scientist Gabriela Cezar.

Donley already is rubbing elbows with interested investors, particularly angels, but she knows that one of the key criteria for e......

For example, exposing stem cells to drugs that are known to cause birth defects reveals certain biomarkers that can be used to identify other dangerous drugs.

Cezar said other stem cell initiatives are focusing on standardized tests, whereas biomarkers are an......

Bringing down the cost of drug development is another potential benefit of Cezar's research. By using human cells as part of early screening, researchers might be able to more quickly identify drugs that are going to fail, saving money for pharmaceutical companies and, theoretically, the consumer.

"It's a technology that reall......
