University of Arkansas – in BELL 2286
This seminar is sponsored by the Department of Biomedical Engineering Distinguished Seminar Series
The talk will be titled “Neural exosomes deliver intrinsic and extrinsic therapeutics to site of injury in the brain.” The seminar is free and open to the public.
Speaker – Steven Stice, director of the University of Georgia’s Regenerative Bioscience Center. A 30-year veteran researcher in bio-manufacturing technologies and regenerative medicine, is world-renowned for developing the first human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC), which has led to 16 U.S. patents in stem cells, cloning and regenerative medicine, including the first U.S. patent on animal cloning and therapeutic cloning from adult animal cells. Stice continues to add to his first-to-market innovations. Working in collaboration with his startup, ArunA and RBC researchers, he is currently developing a new Exosome treatment for stroke that has shown to reduce brain damage and accelerate the brain’s natural healing tendencies, in two divergent animal species and two stroke types.
