Stem Cell Research for a Treatment for Spinal Cord Injuries
The Spinal Cord Society NZ Inc. (SCSNZ) is a non-profit organisation working towards effective treatment for spinal cord injury (SCI). While there are numerous organisations that fund raise and act as palliative support groups, SCSNZ is the only organisation that is currently researching in New Zealand towards a cure for spinal cord injuries.
SCSNZ has established its research laboratory in the CFI of the University of Otago and is engaged on an integrated programme of laboratory and clinical research. The research involves developing cell culture methods for growing adult stem cells that have the potential to be used as a regenerative medicine, not only for Spinal Cord Injuries but also for auto immune diseases such as Type-1 Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis.
