Paris, 14th May
European Director of Operations and a French comittee member attended a Novussanguis conference in Paris on May 14. The aim of the conference was to launch the Novussanguis consortium, an international research consortium on cord blood and adult stem cells for therapeutic aims. The founders of the consortium, Professor Colin McGuckin and Foundation JÃ©rÃ´me Lejeune, hope to meet the expectation of many patients who could benefit from treatment with adult and cord blood stem cells and wish the consortium advance the development of the responsible regenerative medicine. The initiative is welcomed as a promising step towards support and promotion of research that respects the dignity of each human being.
