2012 CELLebrity Calendar of Women in Stem Cell Research

It’s all about women, each of whom is a beautiful, successful, intelligent, female role model in science and in life

Today the Sabrina Cohen Foundation for Stem Cell Research (SCF) proudly announced the formal launch of its 2012 CELLebrity Campaign and the second edition of its "CELLebrity" Doctors Calendar.

“In 2011 the calendar campaign was all men,” says SCF founder and stem cell research advocate, Sabrina Cohen, “but this time around it’s all about women, each of whom is a beautiful, successful, intelligent, female role model in science and in life.”

“We have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know these women as people and enjoy the opportunity to share that with people both in the stem cell field and the general public as a way to raise awareness and all-important funds,” summarizes Sabrina.

Designed to raise public awareness about stem cell research, the 2012 Calendar of "CELLebrity" Doctors captures some of the leading females in science around the world involved in advancing stem cell research, from the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe.

“The Foundation is proud to shed light on their efforts in various disciplines of regenerative medicine”, says Sabrina, “by profiling these highly accomplished professional women outside of the lab in their personal comfort zones.”

“As a sponsor of Sabrina’s campaign, we urge everyone to get a copy – several copies – of the 2012 "CELLebrity" Doctors Calendar and hang it proudly,” says Lee Buckler, industry blogger, consultant, analyst and Managing Director of “Spread the word and encourage everyone to support the project by buying a copy from”
