I spent the last weekend in class at the Perinatal Stem Cell Society Annual Congress and I wanted to share with you a couple of my takeaways.
The event was held in Salt Lake City on February 28th and March 1st. The speakers were a wide variety of clinicians and researchers from all over the world sharing with us where their research is currently heading.
Here are my takeaways from the seminar:
1- The weekend reaffirmed to me that Stem Cell Therapy is the absolute future of medicine. There are armies of researchers in the most prestigious medical schools and labs working tirelessly to find cures for everything from spina bifida to autism. All of the work that was shared came from stem cell therapy. I was really taken back by the wide range of diseases that were discussed
2- The FDA is also working toward making stem cell therapy available to everyone. My hat is off to them for regulating stem cell therapy in order to make sure it is safe. Full FDA approval and subsequent third-party funding is still a way off, but not as far as I previously thought.
3- Researchers need umbilical cords to do their work. If you or someone you love is expecting, I encourage you to donate your cord and placental tissue to science! This option is not available in all areas. If it is, please consider this option. With the advancements in medicine, you will be saving a life.
It was a fantastic conference and I look forward to many more in the future!
