Friday, May 3, 2013, from 8:30am to 12:00pm, GeneCell’s Laboratory Manager, Priscilla Pages and Director of Operations, Jose Cirino, will be speaking to eight different groups of students on the science and biology surrounding adult stem cells, its potential medical uses, as well as the use of liquid nitrogen and cryogenic techniques.

Stem cells can be found and isolated from several different adult tissue types including but not limited to: bone marrow, umbilical cord blood, dental pulp tissue, adipose (fat) tissue, menstrual blood, synovial fluid etc. The stem cells isolated from these adult tissues have the ability to differentiate into numerous other cell types giving them the potential to treat a variety of different disease states.
