GPI is a nonprofit organization recognized as a leading promoter and defender of stem cell research and other cutting-edge medical research targeting cures. Since GPI's inception in 2003, its mission has been to establish a positive policy, regulatory and societal framework to enable research to flourish, under the highest ethical and medical standards. We seek to accelerate the discovery and development of lifesaving cures and therapies to alleviate human suffering due to chronic and terminal afflictions.
Diseases such as ALS, Cancer, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's Disease, and Spinal Cord Injury are affecting millions of people around the world. These people need life-saving cures and therapies now. Stem cell resarch & regenerative medicine offers the potential to cure these diseases, end suffering, create economic growth and reduce skyrocketing healthcare costs around the world driven by the treatment of these diseases and their complications.
The World Stem Cell Summit, produced by the Genetics Policy Institute (GPI), is the largest interdisciplinary, networking meeting of stem cell stakeholders, uniting the diverse regenerative medicine community. With the overarching purpose of fostering biomedical research, funding and investments targeting cures, the Summit is the single conference charting the future of this burgeoning field.
The program provides the research, industry, economic and societal context for understanding how all of the pieces of the stem cell puzzle fit together. The agenda features more than 150 speakers and 50 hours of in-depth presentations. Supported by 200 sponsors, exhibitors, endorsing organizations and media partners, the Summit is a three-day showcase of innovation, insight and inspiration.
The Stem Cell Action Coalition serves as an engine uniting the pro-cures community. We demand that both our elected and appointed officials in all branches and levels of government, establish embryonic stem cell research as a national public health priority.
These officials need to enact and uphold laws that protect funding for scientifically meritorious and ethically responsible research that will foster the emergence of cures sooner, rather than later.
Embryonic stem cell research has been called the most promising medical discovery of our time, and it remains the “gold standard” for stem cell scientists.
More than160 pages of previously unpublished insight into the forefront of regenerative medicine
The editors of the 2012 World Stem Cell Report invited experts to share their views on regenerative medicine strategies in the regions of North and South America, Europe and the Asia Pacific region, where stem cell research is on the forefront the biomedical research and commercialization agenda.
The report serves as a reference and guide to this diverse universe of organizations and networks that influence the success of our field.
The Stem Cell Action Awards recognize the dedicated individuals and organizations that positively impact the cause of stem cell research. GPI honored the stem cell community’s top innovators, leaders, and champions at the 2011 Stem Cell Action Awards Dinner. GPI recognized the organizations and individuals who have had the most positive impact on the stem cell community.
The 2011 Stem Cell Action Award Honorees Included: Sherry Lansing (Leadership Award); Research!America (National Advocacy Award); Let's Talk Science (Education Award); University of Minnesota Stem Cell Institute (Public Advocacy Award) and Grant Albrecht (Inspiration Award).
Stem Cell School is an educational initiative of the Genetics Policy Institute, the Stem Cell Network (Canada), and Radiant 3-D to improve the fundamental understanding of stem cell biology through an engaging educational website with accurate, credible, and up-to-date stem cell content and multimedia resources.
The website is designed for high school and undergraduate level life-science educators. The unique educational content found on this site was developed collaboratively with award winning high school educators, international stem cell organizations and professional medical animators--creating dynamic and engaging educational resources that teach pertinent cellular biology topics through the lens of stem cells and cellular reprogramming.
