Apply for Mesenchymal Stem/Stromal Cell (MSC) Research Award!

Deadline: 31 March 2018

Biological Industries USA is now accepting applications for its Mesenchymal Stem/Stromal Cell (MSC) Research Award which is intended to help scientists achieve their MSC research objectives.

The aim is to provide a culture of excellence through scientific consultation and MSC media products and protocols that support the maintenance and propagation of undifferentiated and differentiated cells. The MSC Research Award provides the winning scientists with BI’s MSC cell culture reagents and technical consultation for up to 6 months, as well as a travel award to attend one scientific conference to report findings.

Through the unique ability to replicate as undifferentiated cells, differentiate into multiple lineages, their capacity to migrate specifically to wounds and tumors in vivo and their potential for immunomodulation, MSCs have become a vital tool in many applications of regenerative medicine, including cell differentiation and gene regulation, in screening assays for drug discovery, and for gene therapy and transplantation to treat a wide range of diseases.

Funding Information

Research award valued up to $25,000 in Biological Industries USA products and services will be awarded.
