Angiocrine Bioscience Licenses New Stem Cell Technology

Advances in Cell Based Assays

Advances in Cell Based Assays, 11th & 12th November 2014, London UK

“Angiocrine Bioscience is excited to attend the 7th Annual CBA conference as we expand our collaborations into Europe”
— Dr Daniel Nolan, Angiocrine Bioscience
LONDON, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, August 27, 2014 / -- Angiocrine Bioscience announced in a press release last week that it has licensed the rights to a new technology developed by a team of researchers at the Ansary Stem Cell Institute at Weill Cornell Medical College. This scientific advance, reported in the July 2 issue of Nature, could potentially lead to therapies for patients with blood disorders from their own cells.

“This technology nicely complements our efforts in applying our VeraVec™ platform to the expansion of umbilical cord blood stem cells, another approach toward making stem cell transplant safer and more broadly available to patients in need, ” said Geoff Davis, Angiocrine’s CEO.* Source

Hear more from Angiocrine Bioscience at Advances in Cell Based Assays this autumn as Director of Research, Dr Daniel Nolan, provides further insights into the VeraVec™ platform.

The talk will discuss recent works demonstrating how the chemoresistant niche within cancer involves the vasculature, a look into how the vascular stem cell niche is capable of expanding stem cells in vitro while maintaining potency and engraftability, plus VeraVec™ amenability to 3D and co-culture assays for screening purposes.
