Connecticut is one of only six states that actively supports stem cell research. The Regenerative Medicine Research Fund (RMRF), formerly the Connecticut Stem Cell Program provides millions of dollars in grants each year to support promising stem cell and regenerative medicine research. Yale and the University of Connecticut have both distinguished themselves in the United States as leaders in the field of stem cell research. The year 2017, marked the 10-year anniversary for the Yale Stem Cell Center.
Unfortunately, legislation passed in the early 1970’s slowed stem cell research in the United States. The FDA reports to date, the only therapies approved in the United States include bone marrow for bone marrow transplants and cord blood for certain blood disorders. While stem cell research has been slow to progress in the United States, globally hundreds of new studies are conducted and published each year, evaluating the safety and efficacy of stem cell therapy in a number of diseases.
With their ability to self-renew and replicate, stem cells are the building blocks of life and are essential to every living organism. The capability of stem cells to regenerate organs and tissues opens a wide spectrum of treatment possibilities for diseases that were considered incurable.
