Adipose tissue is gaining acceptance as a potent source of stem cells.!--h2>
In this GEN report, we explore the expanding space of adipose-derived stem cells.
Highlights of this report:
The study of adipose tissue is moving into the mainstream of stem cell and regenerative medicine research.
The field is translating from the deployment of fat for cosmetic or reconstructive applications towards regenerative medicine.
A number of ongoing clinical trials around the world exploring the regenerative potential of adipose tissue/adipose-derived stem cells.
Enal Razvi, Ph.D., conducted his doctoral work on viral immunology and subsequent to receiving his Ph.D. went on to the Rockefeller University in New York to serve as Aaron Diamond Post-doctoral fellow under Professor Ralph Steinman [Nobel Prize Winner in 2011 for his discovery of dendritic cells in the early-70s with Zanvil Cohn]. Subsequently, Dr. Razvi completed his research fellowship at Harvard Medical School. For the last two decades Dr. Razvi has worked with small and large companies and consulted for more than 100 clients worldwide. He currently serves as Biotechnology Analyst and Managing Director of SelectBio U.S. He can be reached at [email protected].
