Hans Keirstead, co-director of the UC Irvine Sue and Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center, will receive $25,000 from the Sabrina Cohen Foundation for Stem Cell Research Saturday, June 6. The nonprofit foundation formed by Cohen, who has lived with a spinal cord injury since 1992, is dedicated to advancing stem cell therapies. Keirstead’s laboratory developed a spinal cord-injury therapy using human embryonic stem cells that recently received U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for testing in humans – the first of its kind in the U.S. Keirstead, also of the UCI Reeve-Irvine Research Center, will present his research developments and discuss the state of stem cell research during the award event in Miami.
