Stand Up for Stem Cell Research in Texas

by Dan Quinn

Want to learn more about stem cell therapies and current research? Our friends at Texans for Stem Cell Research are hosting a series of educational events focused on this promising medical research. The next event, on Tuesday, April 19, in Austin, features Dr. Sean Savitz, director of Cellular Therapy and Translational Stroke Research at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston, and Dr. Jay Schneider, assistant professor in the Department of Cardiology at UT Southwestern Medical School. The event is 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Antone’s, 213 West Fifth Street, in Austin. Click here for more information or to register to attend.

The Texas Freedom Network remains a proud defender of stem cell research, including research involving embryonic stem cells. This promising medical research gives hope to patients and their families struggling with serious medical conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, cancer and spinal cord injuries. TFN is monitoring the current legislative session and stands ready to work with TCSR and Texans for the Advancement of Medical Research to stop far-right attempts to restrict or even ban such research in Texas. You can help by joining TFN’s Stand Up for Science Rapid Response Team.
