Stem Cell Grants Awarded to Eleven UConn Scientists

I am very proud to announce that eleven University of Connecticut scientists received state-funded grant awards Tuesday, totaling $5.4 million from the Connecticut Stem Cell Research Advisory Committee (SCRAC) to advance embryonic and human adult stem cell research in Connecticut. These grants will allow researchers to pursue discoveries that one day may yield treatments for spinal cord injuries and diseases such as Alzheimer’s and juvenile diabetes. Congratulations.
