Save the Cord Foundation and WellSky are proud to welcome Dr. Anthony Filiano from the Marcus Center for Cellular Cures (MC3) at Duke University, as our featured speaker for our next edition of Share the Science on May 27th, 2020. Join us to hear Dr. Filiano present his research using umbilical cord-derived cell therapies to target neuroinflammation. Register here (registration is now closed).
Share the Science is a free webinar series focused on the cord blood industry and the latest research in this field. As always, we invite both health professionals and the general public to join us for this unique online educational series. Learn more about this exciting educational series here.
Recent research using cord blood has demonstrated the efficacy of using cord-blood derived components to promote myelination and increase function in neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, autism spectrum disorder, and aging. For our next Share the Science webinar, Dr. Anthony Filiano will speak about the exciting research he and his colleagues are pursuing in this area.
Dr. Filiano and his colleagues at the Marcus Center for Cellular Cures (Duke University) are interested in understanding the complex interactions between the immune system and nervous system with the intent to uncover novel therapeutic targets to combat diseases such as autism spectrum disorder. In particular, Dr. Filiano's work is focused on how cord-blood derived cells and products can be used to promote healthy brain function and alleviate behavioral dysfunction in these devastating neurological conditions.
In this Share the Science webinar, Dr. Filiano will discuss two investigational cell therapies for inflammatory disease:
Both of these studies point to exciting developments in the use of cord blood and cord tissue. Equally, these studies bring hope to many patients around the world who are looking for treatments to complex conditions often considered untreatable.
