Scripps Research awarded $17 million for adult stem cell use to treat eye diseases

ase activated receptor signaling; from the Nemerow and Siuzdak groups in molecular tools for the modification and analysis of progenitor cells; and from the Balch lab on the cell biology of retinal pigmented epithelial cells. In addition, a member of the Friedlander lab, Scientific Associate Mohammed El Kalay, brings decades of experience with cell-based engineering to the task of developing good laboratory practices.

"This program has enabled my group to collaborate with several highly talented investigators here at Scripps, many of whom were not previously working in the eye field," says Friedlander. "Together, we make a strong and highly complementary team. Im determined we will bring this potential therapy to the point of being tested in the clinic. To date, we have cured many mice, but whether it will work or not in humans is another story-but thats what we want to find out. This is an extraordinary opportunity to take highly novel laboratory concepts, test them experimentally, and translate them into therapies for the treatment of blinding eye disease."
