Using placenta-derived stem cells for novel medical therapies

Robert Hariri at TEDMED 2011
The Cellular Therapeutics CEO talks about his research in using placenta-derived stem cells as novel therapy for Crohn’s disease, and to create new “organoids” for research and transplants.

Past research has suggested that human placentas are a rich source of stem cells that may prove useful in treating leukemiaheart disease and multiple sclerosis.

In this TEDMED 2011 talk, Robert Hariri, MD, PhD, chief executive officer of Cellular Therapeutics Division at Celgene, discusses the challenges and potential benefits of transforming stem cells harvested from the placenta into novel medical therapies for a variety of conditions.
