Thread: A Night with Dr. Hans Keirstead

  1. #21
    I was not in Santa Barbara but found and copied this article as an update to Dr. Keirstead's work. I chose this particular article because it mentions CHRONIC SCI and Polio.

    Btw, note the money that the small SMA population has raised recently for Dr. Keirstead. I really think that we can do better...

    Dr. Hans Keirstead's Motor Neuron Replacement Program - $60,000 Award

    GSF's $60,000 award to Dr. Hans Keirstead at University of California, Irvine will be used exclusively to fully fund critical experiments requested by the Federal Drug Administration, which will enable the human clinical trial for this promising stem-cell based motor neuron replacement program. Dr. Keirstead's program will initially focus on SMA Type I, the most severe form of the disease, but the pre-clinical and clinical data will be directly relevant to SMA Type II and III, ALS-Lou Gehrig's disease, chronic spinal cord injury, and polio, all of which are characterized by motor neuron loss.

    "We are forever grateful to the SMA community for their support in helping us move our discoveries from the bench to the bedside," said Dr. Hans Keirstead, Associate Professor at the Reeve-Irvine Research Center. "Together, we have pioneered a first for SMA, and for the stem cell field."

    This most recent $60,000 award is in addition to over $170,000 GSF and its programs have donated in support of Dr. Keirstead's research over the past 12 months.
