Session on Stem Cell Research Therapy

Stem Cell Therapy is known to treat a lot of diseases and disorders (leukemia, spinal cord injuries etc) and scientists believe it has the potential to cure a lot of degenerative diseases including cancer, Alzheimer’s, diabetes etc.

In addition to adult stem cells (which are more rigid), storing the stem cells from umblical cord (after the child is born) is known to treat many disorders (including severe aneamia) in the child. There are many questions on the application of the stemcells stored as part of the placenta/umblical cord. A lot of us are under confusion as to whether we should invest that kind of money and what should be the questions we should be asking the vendors of stem cell banks.

A seminar on StemCell Research and it’s applications is being held in IISc next Saturday (11 Aug) 3pm to 6pm. The speakers are renowned people from the research field, practitioners (performing bone-marrow transplants, doing research on Cord blood cells) and legal experts (on government policies).

Do attend to know more on the therapy and feel free to forward the information to anyone who may be interested, especially expecting parents. Entry is free.
