Cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s Disease — StemExpress is proud of the work we do to accelerate the prevention and cure of these and other deadly and life-altering diseases.
StemExpress coordinates with clinics and hospitals to obtain human tissue and blood — specimens that would otherwise be disposed of — and provide them to biotechnology and academic institutions performing research to find a cure. The nation’s and the world’s great research facilities need a reliable source of human-derived blood, tissue and cellular specimens to perform their studies.
Ninety percent of our work is with adult, healthy, living donors and 100% of our samples are collected according to the highest ethical standards and in strict adherence to the law. StemExpress has never requested nor received an intact fetus.
StemExpress performs extensive work to test, isolate and purify the donated cells so that researchers can use them to help find cures and treatments for life’s significant medical conditions. It is for this work that we are paid.
We would all benefit from a dialogue about how rare and important human materials are collected, how stem cell research works and the incredible power of regenerative medicine to improve the quality of life of so many people stricken with disease.
