Stem cell companies consider moving to region

Thursday, March 09, 2006 - Stem Cell Guru

So read a recent headline in the Pittsburgh Business Times. Will Pittsburgh become a hub of stem cell research? It will if the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine has its way, as it is apparently close to bringing three adult stem cell companies, from Ohio, Israel and South America to Pittsburgh. The driving force behind this move is Dr Amir Patel, Director of Cardiac Cell Therapy at the McGowan Institute who confimred that the three companies were all ones he currently works with.

Pittsburgh is attractive to the relocation candidates because it was the first city in the country where stem cells were surgically delivered into patients' hearts. With the companies convinced at a clinical and scientific level to relocate to Pittsburgh, only the financial aspect, including incentives from state and local governments, still need to be ironed out before the companies will agree to come, according to Dr Patel.
