Treena Livingston Arinzeh, PhD, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) whose research has proven the potential of adult stem cell research to help patients suffering from spinal cord injuries and related diseases, will receive an Outstanding Women in Research Award from The New Jersey Association for Biomedical Research (NJABR), Union. >>
--“Stem cell biology is one of the greatest revolutions in bio-medicine,” Ira Black, MD,  told 350 listeners at yesterday's forum at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) on stem cell research.  Black, chair of the department of neuroscience and cell research at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey- Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, discussed recent breakthroughs in stem cell research.  He talked about the it might bring for treatments of Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, spinal cord injuries, birth defects, and other degenerative diseases. Treena Livingston Arinzeh, PhD, NJIT assistant professor of biomedical engineering, also spoke. In introducing Arinzeh, Black called tissue engineering “the next level” in bio-medical research. Arinzeh described how her studies point the way to “off the shelf” therapies for broken bones and spinal cord injuries. Arinzeh recently received the 2003 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers for her research on adult stem cells. >>
