NeoStem, a company that focuses on developing diagnostic and therapeutic uses of adult stem cells, teamed up with the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Culture to "expand research and raise awareness of adult stem cell therapies," according to a press release from NeoStem. Together, they will develop "educational programs, publications, and academic courses with an interdisciplinary approach for theological and philosophical faculties, including those of bioethics, around the world." In a statement, the Pontifical Council for Culture's Reverend Tomasz Trafny, said: "Through educational initiatives with NeoStem and sponsorship of scientific research programs involving cutting edge adult stem cell science which does not hurt human life, we come one step closer to a breakthrough that can relieve needless human suffering.' He adds that he hopes this collaboration "could lead to significant financial commitment" to support NeoSteam's technological research.
