$8.7 Million Awarded to Stem Cell Researchers in Clinical & Basic Biology Grants from the State Stem Cell Agency

Dr. Stanley Nelson, a scientist with the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA, was awarded a $6 million grant from the state stem cell agency today to develop a combination therapy for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), a potentially fatal disease that currently has no effective treatment.
