Date:9/29/2011

d Clinical Studies of Stem Cells for Heart Regeneration at 4 p.m., Monday, Oct. 3.

  • Nissim Benvenisty, MD, PhD, a research scientist at the Institute who primarily works with embryonic stem cells, will participate in a panel discussion, Safety Issues in Stem Cell Therapies, at 12:15 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 4.

    "Cedars-Sinai is proud to sponsor this unique and outstanding event that brings together industry, academia and patient advocates to discuss the real advances and challenges of stem cells and translational medicine,'' said Clive Svendsen, PhD, director of Cedars-Sinai's Regenerative Medicine Institute.

    Dedicated to advancing one of the most promising medical frontiers, the Cedars-Sinai Regenerative Medicine Institute brings together basic scientists and clinicians to translate laboratory discoveries into effective stem cell and other regenerative therapies. It houses leading experts in neurodegenerative, metabolic, skeletal, blood and eye diseases under one roof with shared equipment and other resources.

    At the heart of the Institute is a core facility for the production of pluripotent stem cells capable of making all tissues in the human body. These are generated from adult human patient skin biopsies and other tissues. These cells have the potential to both model and treat many different types of human diseases. Working directly with collaborators across Cedars-Sinai Medical Center the Institute's scientists are untangling the causes of disease and at the same time generating cells that may one day be used to treat patients.

    "The unique combination of an outstanding hospital and rapidly growing research mission at Cedars-Sinai puts it at the cutting edge of the expanding field of regenerative medicine. We plan to move therapies from "bench to bedside" by taking them out of the laboratory and directly into the clinical environment," Svendsen said.
