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

outstanding. I am very proud of the fellows that have been chosen by the committee throughout the years. By supporting the next generation of stem cell researchers, I see the NYSCF Fellowship Program as a flagship for the Foundation's transformative efforts on behalf of stem cell research," said Dr. Ruth Lehmann, Co-Chair of the Fellowship Review Committee and Director of the Helen and Martin Kimmel Center for Stem Cell Biology at NYU School of Medicine.

The New York Stem Cell Foundation Fellows are applying stem cell technologies towards the development of therapeutics for a variety of medical conditions.

The 2010 Fellows:

  • Elisa Cimetta, PhD, working with Dr. Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic at Columbia University, is using advanced technologies to study and direct stem cell differentiation.

  • Natalie Kim, PhD, working with Dr. Lee Rubin at Harvard University, is finding improved ways to generate brain cells from adult cells for the treatment of ALS.

  • Ian Martin, PhD, working with Dr. Ted Dawson at Johns Hopkins University, is generating and characterizing neurons from Parkinson's disease patients.

  • Jae-won Shim, PhD, working with Dr. Lorenz Studer of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, is using stem cells from patients to model Parkinson's disease.

  • Chutima "Noi" Talchai, PhD, working with Dr. Domenico Accili at Columbia University, is turning intestinal cells into functional insulin-producing cells, which is crucial to the development of Type I diabetes therapies.

  • Maya Tevlin, PhD, working with Dr. Shai Shaham at The Rockefeller University, is modeling cell conversion during development to identify strategies for new regenerative therapeutics.

  • George Kai Wang, PhD, working with Dr. Robert Kass at Columbia University, is developing ways to model and treat life-threatening heart conditions and sudden cardiac death using stem cells.

  • Oren Ziv, PhD, working with Dr. Yuval
