Johnny Huard, Ph.D., associate professor of orthopaedics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, is working to characterize the cells, Dr. Peault said.

The future scope of the collaboration will expand beyond investigation of stem cells, however. Scientists from France and the University of Pittsburgh will be reviewing other programs such as hepatology, psychiatry, neurobiology, transplantation immunology and computational biology areas in which they already have found common interests.
