Funding Adult Stem Cell Research
The potential to treat or possibly cure dozens – maybe hundreds – of major diseases and conditions makes emerging adult stem cell therapies perhaps the most exciting medical advancements of the 21st century. SFLF is dedicated to helping to accelerate this urgently needed adult stem cell research and development.
SFLF’s newsletter, Life Lines, and other publications, community-based forums, international conferences, and media outreach promote awareness of adult stem cells’ therapeutic potential. By sharing updates about adult stem cell research, we bring attention to clinical trials and encourage people to consider participating in them.
The lack of knowledge about adult stem cell science and the shortage of funding for research and development slow advancement of stem cell therapies, but greater national and global interest can inspire both public and private investment in stem cell research. By spotlighting those who conduct groundbreaking investigation, SFLF helps match philanthropists and investors with research they find compelling. SFLF also conducts fundraising to provide cash prizes to reward and sustain the most promising research projects.
All SFLF activities are leveraged to spread credible, accurate information about adult stem cells. A general public educated about the power and possibilities of adult stem cell therapies can urge decision makers to create policies that foster stem cell innovation.
