NeoStem, Inc. Officially Launches Adult Stem Cell Collection Center and R&D Laboratory in Cambridge, Massachusetts

NEW YORK, April 27 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- NeoStem, Inc. (NYSE Amex: NBS) ("NeoStem" or the "Company"), an international biopharmaceutical company with operations in the U.S. and China, today announced the official launch of the Company's Adult Stem Cell Collection Center and Research & Development ("R&D") laboratory at the Company's 8,000 square foot facility at the Riverside Technology Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The NeoStem Cambridge Center launch will be marked by an on-site ribbon-cutting event, speakers program and facility tour scheduled for Tuesday, April 27th, at 12:00 p.m. at 840 Memorial Drive on the 4th Floor. The launch event will be hosted in association with The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center and the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council (MassBio), of which NeoStem is a member. Featured speakers scheduled to participate in the special event include:

    -- Timothy Murray, Massachusetts Lieutenant Governor
    -- Robin Smith, M.D., Chairman and CEO of NeoStem
    -- Susan Windham-Bannister, President and CEO Massachusetts Life Sciences
    -- Robert Coughlin, MassBio President and CEO
    -- Wayne Marasco, M.D., Ph.D., Chairman of NeoStem's Scientific Advisory

The program's distinguished speakers will discuss not only the exciting adult stem cell research they will be conducting for therapeutic development, but also the impact NeoStem will make in the Cambridge community.

"We are excited about the official launch of our new Adult Stem Cell Collection Center and R&D facility in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the heart of one of the top bioscience communities in the country," commented Dr. Robin Smith, Chairman and CEO of NeoStem, Inc. "The R&D center underscores our commitment to research and development and our continued goal of excellence in adult stem cell technologies. In connection with the Company's recent expansion into China, we are pursuing the build-out of additional laboratory capabilities in Beijing, China to enhance our response to the growing needs from our Chinese collaborators."

The addition of NeoStem's Adult Stem Cell Collection Center at the Company's Cambridge location will enable individuals to donate and store their own (autologous) stem cells for personal use in times of potential medical need in the future. In this growing field, adult stem cell therapies are being developed for cosmetic procedures and for the treatment of heart disease, orthopedic issues, breast cancer and multiple sclerosis, among other potential therapeutic uses.

Strategically located in close proximity to Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, NeoStem Cambridge's R&D laboratory features a blood collection/apheresis center, on-site cryogenic storage of research samples, cell culture laboratory, and a new 16-channel Beckman flow cytometer with cell counting and sorting capabilities. The Company has recently hired three full-time researchers to support its stem cell research and clinical development for a current total of seven full-time employees at this facility.

NeoStem plans to expand its basic research and development activities and employ additional researchers with the goal of attaining a deeper understanding of stem cell biology and providing active support to its academic and clinical partners. The Cambridge R&D laboratory will also support the planned development of a commercial product that the Company expects will facilitate the separation of very small embryonic like stem cells from blood, enabling NeoStem to create high-throughput, cell-based assays for use in pharmaceutical and nutraceutical research.
