Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.
The New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to accelerate cures for the major diseases of our time through stem cell research. NYSCF is a publicly supported not-for-profit organization that was incorporated in the state of New York on May 19, 2005. The foundation is dedicated to furthering the research of human embryonic stem cells by supporting scientists engaged in human embryonic stem cell research and somatic cell nuclear transfer through grants, fellowships and symposia.
Stem cell research offers the greatest hope for medical advances we have ever known. The research frontier of the 21st century, it holds the promise of cures for neuro-degenerative diseases such as ALS, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's; heart disease; cancer; blindness; and spinal cord and other traumatic injury. Yet continued federal funding limitations have dramatically slowed our progress toward the day when stem cells will lead us to cures.
Private philanthropy has never been more essential. It can push this groundbreaking science forward and it is nimble in ways that government and large academic institutions are not. The New York Stem Cell Foundation directs money into the most promising research, leveraging private philanthropy to advance the stem cell science that holds the greatest potential for curing disease.
