Two Hutchinson Center Scientists Receive a Total of $16.7 Million for Collaborative Stem Cell Research
Date:10/7/2009

l work to generate "ex vivo," or outside the body, platelets and their precursors from embryonic stem cells for use as cell therapy.

Bernstein, along with Hutchinson Center/UW Cancer Consortium researchers and the University of Pennsylvania's Edward Morrisey, Ph.D., is using his $8.5 million award to determine how certain signaling pathways - ordered sequences of biochemical reactions inside cells - affect cardiac and blood-forming cell development and cardiac regeneration and repair. The team will also study whether these pathways can be harnessed for therapeutic applications. Drawing on Bernstein's success in expanding cord-blood stem cells, the researchers hope to refine methods for deriving therapeutically useful numbers of cells for transplantation and other treatments.

At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, our interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists and humanitarians work together to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other diseases. Our researchers, including three Nobel laureates, bring a relentless pursuit and passion for health, knowledge and hope to their work and to the world. For more information, please visit fhcrc.org.
