NYSCF awards fellowships to 8 innovative stem cell scientists
Date:6/1/2010

NEW YORK, NY (June 1, 2010) The New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) today announced the award of eight new NYSCF-Druckenmiller Fellows. These postdoctoral scientists join 15 accomplished stem cell researchers from leading institutions who have been supported by the program since 2006. NYSCF has awarded 23 fellowships to date.

The NYSCF Fellowship Program, which has become one of the most competitive postdoctoral fellowship programs in the world, has so far committed almost eleven million dollars to postdoctoral fellowships for stem cell researchers.

"Through this Fellowship program, NYSCF is ensuring that the next generation of researchers has the expertise in cutting-edge and specialized techniques needed to lead their field as it grows," said Dr Shahin Rafii, Co-Chair of the Fellowship Review Committee and Director of the Ansary Stem Cell Center for Regenerative Medicine at Weill Medical College of Cornell University.

"These gifted scientists are innovating the stem cell technology that is revolutionizing medicine," said Susan L. Solomon, NYSCF CEO. She also noted that NYSCF Fellows have published scientific papers in the most prestigious scientific journals, including Nature, Nature Biotechnology and Cell Stem Cell, and that four NYSCF Fellows have recently been appointed to professorships at their respective institutions. "Their accomplishments are impressive," she continued.

Each of the scientists will receive funding over a one to three-year period to support their research initiatives. They will have access to NYSCF's specialized stem cell laboratory in Manhattan, where they will be able to conduct their research and receive training in advanced stem cell research techniques. The fellows will also present their work at NYSCF's Annual Translational Stem Cell Research Conference, to be held on October 12 and 13, 2010 at Rockefeller University in New York City.
