The New York Stem Cell Foundation has recently announced that four new NSYCF-Stanley and Fiona Druckenmiller Fellows have been awarded to four New York-based scientists. These fellows now join the ranks of thirteen other highly accomplished stem cell researchers from leading research institutions who have been supported by the NSYCF program since 2006.

The program has committed $5,000,000 to date to training the next generation of stem cell scientists who are performing advanced stem cell research in the United States.

“These gifted scientists are innovating the stem cell technology that is revolutionizing medicine,” said Susan L. Solomon, NYSCF CEO. “Second-year NYSCF Fellow Dr. Justin Ichiida has identified chemical compounds that allow adult stem cells to be reprogrammed without the use of cancer-causing genes.”

“Through its Fellowship Program, NYSCF is ensuring that the next generation of researchers has the knowledge and expertise in cutting-edge techniques that will be required to lead their field as it grows,” said Shahin Rafii, MD, Director of The Ansary Center for Stem Cell Therapeutics at Weill Medical College, Cornell University, and co-chair of the NYSCF Fellowship Review Committee and member of NYSCF’s Medical Advisory Board.
