Stem Cell Research Grant Awarded by Archdiocese

A team of researchers investigating the potential of adult stem cells has been awarded with a $100,000 grant by the Archdiocese of Sydney announced Cardinal George Pell.

The potential for stem cells derived from human dental pulp to transform into neuron cells will be investigated by the researchers who are based in Adelaide. The cells could be used to treat stroke victims if they can be effectively transformed.

Dr. Simon Koblar of the Australian Research Council Center for the Molecular Genetics of Development at the University of Adelaide and Associate Professor Stan Gronthos of the Hanson Institute led the research team. Instrumental in advancing their studies, was PhD. student Dr. Agnieszka Arthur, whom both the researchers praised. Dr. Arthur is doing postdoctoral work at the Hanson Institute and is a co-investigator of the grant.
