The cell therapy center
The cell therapy center is a non-for-profit academic and research institute that excels in stem cell research and therapeutic applications. Stem cell treatments give major hope for patients suffering from diseases that are untreatable using classical medical options, such as multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries and Alzheimer’s. Unfortunately, though, several years of research and experiments still separate humanity from achieving those goals. These trials are extremely expensive and need several equipment, instruments, materials and dedicated scientists. Academic institutions cannot afford to support research without the help of local and international communities. The medical grade refrigerators donated by Inner wheel Philadelphia will be a great asset for the center and were indeed very much needed. They were put to immediate use at the cell culture facility of the center as they are required for holding materials under strict conditions. These refrigerators also have internal and external monitors that were connected to the center’s alarm system, which is of paramount importance to maintain the highest standards at the center as well as meet accreditation requirements. The staff at the center are extremely pleased with the newest addition to their facility and look forward to welcoming members of the Inner Wheel again.
