STEMSO, The International Stem Cell Society, is a member based, international, non-profit 501 (c) 6 trade association for the purpose of promoting the interests of the global, adult stem cell healthcare industry while linking patients and stakeholders with member medical organizations. STEMSO advocates for the availability of adult stem cells in the United States and abroad, believing that a combined effort can change the world. Because no one organization has enough money, time, or resources to address an issue of this magnitude independently, STEMSO recognizes that a combined effort and voice is more effective through a trade association.
STEMSO’s membership consists of organizations rather than individual members. Through these organizations, STEMSO works to create dialog and advocates for public awareness and wider usage and acceptance of adult stem cell treatments for a range of illnesses and injuries, both in the United States and internationally.
The STEMSO 2014 Conference, titled “Bridging the Gap: Research to Point of Care”, February 19-22, 2014 at The Grand Lucayan in Freeport, Grand Bahamas, spotlights global, expert researchers, scientists, clinicians, and regulatory authorities who will discuss progress in taking these promising therapies for disease and injuries to market in a responsible manner. Registration and the agenda may be found on the organization’s website at http://www.stemso.org
Douglas Hammond, president of STEMSO, states, “STEMSO will continue to provide a proactive and positive voice for organizations and jurisdictions using adult stem cells for therapies and transplants. The Commonwealth of The Bahamas, and our Gold Sponsor, Okyanos Heart Institute, provide an excellent example of the results that can be brought about with realistic, modern and balanced regulations that serve the national economic interest, patient needs for life-saving medicine, and the business advantages for commercialization and translation of adult stem cells."
STEMSO provides information, education, resources, advocacy and public awareness concerning adult stem cell therapies and works to promote doctor and patient’s rights to access the latest developments in the industry via the point of care model without undue regulation.
