Faculty of the Keck Center (left to right, Rick Cohen, Martin Grumet, Wise Young, Melitta Schachner, and Ronald Hart) celebrate the dedication of the Rutgers Stem Cell Research Center (SCRC), located immediately adjacent to the Keck Center. The SCRC is designed to provide state-funded laboratory space for working with embryonic stem cells to identify therapies for neural injury and degenerative diseases.

On June 19, 2007, the New Jersey Commission on Science & Technology awarded a $3M grant to support projects anchored by the SCRC, including a human embryonic stem cell core facility.

As part of our ongoing partnership with Applied Biosystems, Professor Ronald Hart recently attended the opening of the new Application Support Center in Foster City, CA. This facility provides training courses and collaborator research. The SCRC plans to work closely with Applied Biosystems on technologies to validate and document human embryonic stem cell cultures. View an interview with Dr. Hart on this partnership.
