Moving Adult Stem Cells and the Therapeutic Proteins They Produce from the Laboratory to the Patient

Dear Texans and All Friends of Stem Cell Research,

Our distinguished scientists continue to provide excellent forums for education and this is an event you simply should not miss!

Dr. Theresa Fossum, Director of the Texas Institute for Preclinical Sciences, and Dr. Darwin Prockop, Director of the Institute for Regenerative Medicine, Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine, are organizing a mini-symposium on the exciting science and progress that we and others are making in developing new therapies with adult stem cells and the proteins they produce.

This symposium will be informative to a broad audience and perhaps even foster further interactions and progress.   The seminar will be held at the TIPS building in College station beginning at 9:15 am on Friday, November 4. Be sure to RSVP before October 24th.

Our team will be there and we hope you will join us!

Texans for Stem Cell Research (TSCR) is a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)3, volunteer organization dedicated to the advancement of stem cell clinical applications. We promote FDA approved clinical trials that have the potential for new novel clinical therapy approaches for treating the millions suffering from debilitating disease and injury. TSCR hosts education events and provides advocacy support to industry leaders, partner organizations, researchers and doctors conducting stem cell research in Texas.  TSCR assists the Texas based research teams and institutions by fostering strategic collaborations with potential partners.  Stem cell therapies are advancing with promising results in clinical trials and TSCR will continue to promote safe, ethical and responsible research to accelerate translational efforts in Texas.      

You can help our organization continue to provide important education about promising stem cell research through your donations.  Your contributions provide support for our educational programs and advocacy efforts. We must keep our community informed about the importance of this research and it's potential to provide treatments and cures for diseases and debilitating injuries. You can now make a small gift through PayPal.  We thank you in advance for your support and hope you will join our growing organization.
