29 Johns Hopkins stem cell researchers awarded funding
Date:5/31/2012

This year the Maryland Stem Cell Research Fund awarded 29 of 40 grants to Johns Hopkins researchers for the study of stem cell metabolism and regulation, the creation of new cell models for human diseases such as schizophrenia and Rett syndrome, which previously could be studied only in animals, and the development of new potential therapies.

Researchers whose preliminary data promised greater discoveries were awarded Investigator-Initiated grants. Jeff Bulte, Ph.D., professor of radiology, biomedical engineering and chemical and biomolecular engineering and a member of the Institute for Cell Engineering, hopes to develop a cell therapy for treatment of type 1 diabetes an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system kills the insulin-producing cells that help regulate blood sugar. By developing cloaked stem and insulin-producing cells that can evade immune system detection, Bulte and his team hope to replace damaged cells and restore insulin levels in patients.

Grants were awarded to:

  • Bulte, for his project "Co-Encapsulation of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells and Islet Cells for Treatment of Type 1 Diabetes"
  • Ted Dawson, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Institute for Cell Engineering, for his project "Generation and Characterization of Isogenic Parkinson's Disease and Control iPS Cells"
  • Jennifer Elisseeff, Ph.D., Jules Stein Professor of Ophthalmology and director of the Translational Tissue Engineering Center, in collaboration with Tissue Banks International Inc. & CIRM, for her project "ECM-Based Materials for Stem Cell Differentiation and Bone Repair"
  • Gabsang Lee, D.V.M., Ph.D., assistant professor of neurology and neuroscience, in collaboration with Life Technologies Inc., for his project "Derivation of Functional Nociceptive Neurons From hESC and Its Application to Pain-Disorder Human iPSC"
  • Guo-li Ming, M.D., Ph.D., professor of neurology and neuroscience, for her project "Toward Correction of Neurodevelopmenta
