The purpose of this program is to use adult stem cells to treat brain injuries resulting from stroke and decreased blood flow and oxygen. We are currently conducting studies in animals designed to translate the scientific aspects of stem cells into their clinical use in patients. Our work applies to the treatment of both adults and children. These injuries are often severe and result in longstanding disability. We hope to treat these injuries by transplanting cells derived from bone marrow, thereby improving the patients' quality of life.
Our research is focused in the long term on the treatment of neurological illnesses such as stroke, cerebral palsy, and Parkinson's disease. Our current focus is on stroke and neonatal hypoxic-ischemic injury.
