Download Word version FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – A researcher currently working on exosome therapy for brain injuries
and whose innovations and entrepreneurship have led to 16 patents, will be giving
two seminars Oct. 25-26 at the University of Arkansas’ Fayetteville campus.
The first seminar by Steve Stice, director of the Regenerative Bioscience Center at
the University of Georgia, is sponsored by the Department of Animal Science King Visiting
Scholar Program. He will be speaking at 4 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 25, in Hembree Auditorium,
AFLS E107. His talk will be titled “Animal induced pluripotent cell for gene modification,
vaccine production, and evolutionary selection in a dish.”
“Animal Science is excited to host Dr. Stice,” said Mike Looper, Animal Science Department
head for the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture. “His innovative
and entrepreneurial research has enhanced the lives of both humans and animals. Anyone
that attends his seminars will leave with a greater understanding of science’s impact
on health. We extend our appreciation to the King Visiting Scholar Program for their
generous support of Dr. Stice’s visit.”
Stice's second seminar is sponsored by the Department of Biomedical Engineering Distinguished
Seminar Series and will be at 11:50 a.m. Friday, Oct. 26, in BELL 2286. The talk will
be titled “Neural Exosomes deliver intrinsic and extrinsic therapeutics to site of
injury in the brain."
Both seminars are free and open to the public.
In addition to directing the Regenerative Bioscience Center, Stice is the Georgia
Research Alliance Eminent Scholar endowed chair, DW Brooks Distinguished Professor,
and co-founder of several biotech start-ups, including ArunA Biomedical; the first
company to commercialize a stem cell product used to facilitate approval of Pfizer's
current cognitive enhancing pharmaceuticals.
Stice, a 30-year veteran researcher in bio-manufacturing technologies and regenerative
medicine, is world-renowned for developing the first human pluripotent stem cell which
has led to 16 U.S. patents in stem cells, cloning and regenerative medicine, including
the first U.S. patent on animal cloning and therapeutic cloning from adult animal
cells. Stice continues to add to his first-to-market innovations. Working in collaboration
with his startup, ArunA and RBC researchers, he is currently developing a new exosome
treatment for stroke that has shown to reduce brain damage and accelerate the brain's
natural healing tendencies, in two divergent animal species and two stroke types.
As an invited member, he sits on the Scientific Advisory Board for the Food and Drug
Administration, and is serving on the Governing Committee of the first institute funded
by the U.S. Department of Commerce; National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing
Stice is the UGA academic lead in a research consortium, based in Atlanta; Engineering
Research Center for Cell Manufacturing Technologies, which was recently funded $20
million by NSF. Most recent honors include election to NAI Fellow status, the highest
professional distinction accorded solely to academic inventors, and the 2017 Georgia
Bio Industry Growth Award. (Source: Regenerative Bioscience Center; www.rbc.uga.edu)
