Where are we with Stem Cells? Hadassah Pioneer Brings Us Up to Date

Tuesday, Apr 17 2018

Prof. Benjamin Reubinoff, MD, PhD

Many diseases involve the malfunctioning or dying of cells within the body. Can these cells be replenished or replaced to alleviate the suffering of those with debilitating conditions such as multiple sclerosis, age-related macular degeneration, Parkinson’s disease, and diabetes?

Do adult stem cells or embryonic stem cells hold the answer? Where are we in renewing our cells or replacing dying ones with new ones?  What exactly is the state of the art? Are there caveats in seeking stem cell treatment today?

Trailblazing new frontiers in medicine, Prof. Benjamin Reubinoff, MD, PhD, Director of the Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research Center at the Hadassah Medical Organization, addresses these questions in two illuminating and inspirational podcasts. Listen now:


The Exciting Future of Stem Cells, Part 1

The Exciting Future of Stem Cells, Part 2

Other interviews are available on our new podcast series Hadassah on Call: New Frontiers in Medicine.  Each episode takes you behind the headlines with Hadassah Medical Organization doctors and specialists, patients and nurses.
