New Jersey Health Foundation Awards $50,000 Grant For Research to Facilitate Stem Cell Growth
Date:10/21/2013

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dr. Steven Levison has received a $50,000 Innovation Stage Funding Grant from New Jersey Health Foundation to advance research that could make stem cell growth easier and less expensive for researchers, scientists and others interested in using stem cells to advance medical studies.

Dr. Levison, a professor in the Department of Neurology and Neurosciences at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School (NJMS), has worked collaboratively with colleagues at NJMS and at the New Jersey Institute of Technology to develop a multifunctional matrix that allows neural stem cells to be propagated as undifferentiated cells without daily feeding.

"Our cell culture matrices and supplements can be used in regenerative medicine, biotechnology and life science research," explained Dr. Levison. "We can manufacture products that don't contain animal components so that they are suitable for clinical applications."

Dr. Levison explained that he and his research team have formulated and rigorously tested a novel growth matrix that promotes the proliferation and multipotency of neural stem cells. Commercially available matrices today, he said, do not incorporate defined growth factors.  While some matrices do contain growth factors, they are not defined or suitable for therapeutic use.

"We are very interested in helping Dr. Levison advance his research because we believe this product could be commercialized successfully to be of tremendous benefit to the research community," explained Dr. George F. Heinrich, vice chair and CEO of New Jersey Health Foundation.  "His unique product reduces the time-consuming and tedious task of feeding stem cells on a daily basis, which will save researchers time and money."

Dr. Levison and his research team are presently modifying the scaffold to incorporate a variety of grow
