Adult Stem Cell Awareness

Who, What, Where, and Why

A group of concerned citizens from diverse walks of life who have come together to promote awareness of life-affirming and life-giving adult stem cell research and therapies in the Catholic blogging  and social media communities. If you have a strong desire to help promote adult stem cell awareness, consider adding us to your blogroll. If you feel the call to promote adult stem cell awareness via blogging, have a good understanding of the related issues, and whether Catholic or not, have a “respect life” approach to bio-ethics, please send us an email!



  1. My name is Mary Metcalf and I work at Edelman PR on behalf of Cryo-Cell. I am writing you because we thought an announcement ( they made this week would be of interest to you and the readers of the Adult Stem Cell Awareness Blog.

    Cryo-Cell announced this week its discovery of a new, unique type of stem cell found in menstrual blood that may one day have to potential to treat a number of diseases. Cryo-Cell also launched an exclusive and proprietary new service, called C’elle (, to enable women to collect and cryopreserve their menstrual stem cells using the Diva Cup. Because of the in-depth information, I have the official news release if you would like me to send it to you. Others have done preliminary research into other types of stem cells from menstrual blood, as you might remember from an article on Salon ( The website for C’elle has more information including the detailed science behind this discovery.

    An article in a peer-reviewed journal will be published this winter, but we wanted you to know about the launch of C’elle. We also want to offer you or other Bioethics writers the opportunity to interview some of the researchers on the project or on related projects. The researchers available to interview are:

    -Dr. Amit N. Patel, Director of Cardiac Stem Cell Therapies at the McGowan Institute, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center

    -Dr. Gerald Elfenbein, Immunology Professor at Boston University

    -Dr. Stephen J. Noga, Director of Medical Oncology and Hematology and the Cellular Therapeutics Program at the Alvin & Lois Lapidus Cancer Institute at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore, Associate Professor of Oncology and Pathology at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

    -Dr. Paul R. Sanberg, Distinguished University Professor and Director of the Center of Excellence for Aging and Brain Repair and Associate Vice President/Associate Dean for Biotechnology Development at the University Of South Florida College Of Medicine.

    If you would like to set up an interview, please let me know and I’ll introduce you to my colleague Kellie Hotz.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    This is your official permission to lift anything from my site to use here. Keep in mind that I am NEUTRAL on the religious/moral issue.
