We came across this interesting website dedicated to the science around stem cells and bone marrow. This is always a challenge since it’s not always clear whether these sites are above board, or just shills for cord blood companies. www.Chxa.com reports that Duke University received $10 million from the Robertson Foundation, a family foundation started in 1996, to aid in the study of umbilical cord stem cells in the treatment of cerebral palsy.
Many of us are familiar with the name of Dr. Joanne Kurtberg whose work with stem cells is renown in the race to treat cancers and other disorders, particularly those which plague children.
Read about the donation and what the Robertson family believes Duke can accomplish with this support
