Web site on Johns Hopkins stem cell research is launched

September 28, 2009 – By Gazette Contributor

In conjunction with last week’s 2009 World Stem Cell Summit, co-hosted by Johns Hopkins and held in Baltimore, Johns Hopkins Medicine launched an interactive Web site on which its researchers and clinicians collectively describe their explorations into stem cell biology and engineering.

The multimedia production, which went live Sept. 21 at http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/stem_cell_research, emphasizes applications of stem cell technologies in regenerative medicine and underscores the collaborative effort that is fundamental to translational research.

The site includes everything from a narrated timeline of stem cell research to a video feature of a Johns Hopkins patient, physician and bench scientist who are linked by stem cell research as it relates to Parkinson’s disease. Johns Hopkins experts also weigh in on state-of-the-art issues of ethics and safety as they apply to stem cells.
