Special Announcement...

Dear Friends,

Scientific advancements in the stem cell field can lead to new treatments and therapies for diseases and medical disorders for which we have few or no effective medications or treatment options. The emerging fields of regenerative medicine and cell therapy capitalize on unparalleled collaboration among leading scientists, requires innovative technologies and holds the potential to benefit society through improved health care, disease prevention and treatment.

The technologies, processes and equipment necessary to develop these new treatment options are of great scientific, technical and commercial interest and many companies are involved with the emerging industry across Texas today. 

In an effort to fulfill our continued commitment to education, we partnered with the Austin Forum for Science, Technogy and Society to bring a respected and well recognized clinical and scientific leader to speak about some of the most current topics being discussed in Texas today.

The Austin Forum is a monthly speaker series and networking event that hosts distinguished leaders who share their knowledge and experience about the confluence of science, technology and society in the 21st century.

The Austin Forum on Science, Technology and Society and Texans for Stem Cell Research will co-host this event and we are honored to have commitment from a true world class leader in stem cell research, Emerson Perin, MD, PhD.

The Forum's goal is to engage and educate the Austin community about the numerous ways in which science and technology enhance the quality of their everyday life, as well as the health, prosperity and security of the nation.

We encourage you to RSVP and look forward to seeing you in a few weeks!

Emerson Perin, MD, PhD
Director, Clinical Research for Cardiovascular Medicine
Medical Director of the Stem Cell Center
Texas Heart Institute, St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital
Houston, Texas 

Dr. Perin is the Director of Clinical Research for Cardiovascular Medicine and the Medical Director of the Stem Cell Center at the Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital, as well as the Staff Interventional Cardiologist at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital. He is also Clinical Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine both at Baylor College of Medicine and The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.

Dr. Perin has provided innovative cardiovascular care for 20 years, focusing on minimally invasive interventional approaches to therapy. For more than 10 years, his major research interest has been the study of adult stem cells for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction, chronic heart failure, and peripheral vascular disease. Dr. Perin was the first investigator in the United States to receive approval from the Food and Drug Administration to inject stem cells directly into the hearts of patients suffering from heart failure.

The Stem Cell Center is dedicated to the study of adult stem cells and their role in treating diseases of the heart and the circulatory system.  Through numerous clinical and pre-clinical studies they have come to realize the potential of stem cells to help patients suffering from cardiovascular disease.
