Animal Cell Therapies, Inc. and University of Florida Receive $330k Grant from The Sabes Foundation for Stem Cell Study

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 20, 2013

Animal Cell Therapies, Inc. of San Diego and the University of Florida has received a $330k grant from The Sabes Foundation to fund a study about orthopedic conditions in dogs.

Animal Cell Therapies Inc. is an early stage Veterinary stem cell therapy company whose mission is to deliver a new frontier of stem cell therapies for the treatment of canine orthopedic conditions.

The Sabes Foundation grant will be used to study the potential of mesenchymal stem cells to treat orthopedic conditions in dogs. This research may also be translational across human medicine. The main investigator leading this study will be Dr. Antonio Pozzi, DVM at the University of Florida.

“This grant is fundamental to providing answers about the mechanism of stem cell activity in orthopedic conditions in dogs,” said Dr. Kathryn Petrucci, founder of Animal Cell Therapies, Inc.

“The Sabes Foundation has a special interest and focus in the funding of cutting edge medical research and treatment of animals and humans particularly involving the use of stem cells,” said Robert Sabes of The Sabes Foundation.

The Sabes Foundation was founded by Moe and Esther Sabes in order to enrich the lives of the members of the community through contributions to organizations and people that support that mission. The Foundation’s tradition of giving has continued through the stewardship of Robert and Janet Sabes. The Foundation has continued to support the development of the humanities through a wide variety of gifts and grants to both Jewish and secular causes.

The Sabes Family Foundation looks to enrich communities through supporting a variety of gifts and grants – ranging from the Sabes Jewish Community Center, to the Howard Pulley youth basketball tournament. Through the leadership of Robert Sabes, the Foundation has developed strong financial commitments with unique community assets that serve to culturally enrich our lives. To learn more, go to:
