International Perinatal Stem Cell Society is a 501(c)(3) Organization
In 2013, the International Perinatal Stem Cell Society, Inc. a non-profit (501(c)(3) organization was founded on the basic principle that stem cells from perinatal tissues contain enormous, untapped life potential to treat many diseases and disorders. Perinatal stem cell sources include: amnion, amniotic fluid, cord blood, cord tissue/wharton’s jelly, as well as placental blood and placental tissue. Perinatal stem cells are formed around the time of birth and are classified as adult stem cells but they really are more primitive then stem cells found in bone marrow or adipose tissue or other traditional sources of adult stem cells and as such, have greater therapeutic potential. After editing Perinatal Stem Cells (Wiley Press, 2010) and Perinatal Stem Cells, Second Edition (Wiley Press, 2013), the founders of the Perinatal Stem Cell Society wanted to build on the success of these books and to create a robust society of cooperation and partnership that will advance the use of perinatal stem cells from the bench to the bedside. A third book co-edited by society founder, Sean Murphy, and titled Perinatal Stem Cells: Biology and Clinical Applications was published in 2014 (Springer Press).
The Perinatal Stem Cell Society annually convenes leaders in the field to further expand the world’s knowledge of perinatal stem cells. The 1st International Congress was held in May 2014 in San Francisco and the 2nd International Congress was held on March 2-4, 2016 in Aspen, CO, USA.
The 3rd International Congress will be held in Teaneck, NJ May 19th-21st, 2017.
We invite you to join us in advancing perinatal stem cell research on the path towards treatment.
