Our method of deriving neuronal progenitors from embryonic stem cells, offers a safe, highly scalable and efficient process for both therapeutic and commercial use
Irvine, CA (PRWEB) June 14, 2011



California Stem Cell, Inc (CSC) will be giving three scientific poster presentations during the 9th Annual Meeting of the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) held June 15-18, 2011 in the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Toronto, Canada. Posters will be presented by Aleksandra J. Poole, PhD, Senior Scientist at CSC.

Dr. Poole’s academically rigorous presentations include “The High Purity, Scalable Production of Hepatocytes from Human Embryonic Stem Cells (hESCs); The Utility of hESCs Derived Cells in Predictive Toxicology Applications; and “Method of Neural Cell Purification for Clinical Transplantation.” She oversees the Science Department at California Stem Cell, under VP of Research and Development, Dr. Gabriel Nistor, and is a recognized expert in stem cells, and molecular and cancer biology, as demonstrated by her numerous publications and patents.

“Neuronal progenitors have the potential to revolutionize neuronal drug discovery, and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as spinal cord injury, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and many more. Our method of deriving neuronal progenitors from embryonic stem cells, offers a safe, highly scalable and efficient process for both therapeutic and commercial use,” said Hans Keirstead, PhD, Professor of Anatomy and Neurobiology and Neurological Surgery at the University of California, Irvine, and Chairman of the Scientific Advisory Board of CSC.
