Heart stem cell scientist to honor pioneering woman scientist in keynote speech
Date:4/9/2008

Professor Christine Mummery, one of the worlds leading heart stem cell experts, will later today (9 April) honour the memory of Dame Anne McLaren in the keynote lecture of the inaugural UK National Stem Cell Network Science Meeting in Edinburgh. Dr McLaren was an early pioneer of the study of embryonic germ cells and her research directly contributed to the development of IVF treatments and stem cell techniques.

Prof Mummery from the Netherlands is a leading expert in the study of cardiomyocytes the beating cells of the heart most particularly those derived from stem cells. She will inform the delegates at the UKNSCN conference that Dr McLaren was a leading figure in guiding the stem cell research community in learning the language and ethics of working with early human embryos in research. She will say that the UK regulations, which have allowed the country to take a strong lead in stem cell research, are in part due to Dr McLarens thoughtful input to the various committees that first examined the laws needed to govern IVF treatment.

Speaking ahead of her lecture, Prof Mummery said: Anne McLaren was one of the most thoughtful and sensitive stem cell scientists the scientific community has seen. Her views not only influenced the direction of UK regulation of the field which has helped thousands of couples through IVF treatment but also scientists considering ethical and regulatory questions across Europe.

Anne was also an excellent communicator of her research and, as well as commemorating her work, my lecture will highlight some of the cutting edge advances in todays stem cell research field.

Prof Mummerys lab in The Netherlands is a world leader in the study of the basic development of the heart and how embryonic stem cells differentiate into the cardiac and vascular cells that make up the adult heart.

Prof Mummery said: Stem cell therapies have the potential to help us to treat and manage a wide range of diseas
