About the Founter
About the Founder.pdf Why was Polistem created?
There is no doubt that stem cell research and development has, and continues to be, a topic of great importance medically, scientifically, socially, and politically. Recently there have been great advances made in medicine because of stem cell research. Stem cell research is playing an essential role in helping to cure devastating diseases that plague people all over the world. Polistem was created so that each and every person who is affected by the positive outcomes of stem cell research can unite as a community to forward its advancement.
What does Polistem mean?
When Polistem was started, the founder thought it was essential to come up with a name that was creative, professional, and easy to remember. After a month of innovative and inspirational thought the name Polistem was born. The first four letters “Poli” come from the word “Political.” Because stem cell research is such a politically charged topic it's only reasonable that this be included in a name that promotes stem cell research, development, and policy. The last four letters spell “Stem” which is defined as “the ascending axis of a plant, whether above or below ground, which ordinarily grows in an opposite direction to the root or descending axis.” It is also a word that is associated with “stem cells” and represents growth. When you combine the two words, you get eight letters that spell POLISTEM.
