Cancer and cystic fibrosis - learn what can be done to prevent and treat disease.

Using adult stem cells to treat disease

Dr Nigel Farrow (Grant funded Scientist, University of Adelaide)
Adult stem cells are set to play a remarkable role in future modern medicines. Harnessing the power of these adult stem cells for treating diseases such as cystic fibrosis could produce very long benefits from only a single treatment.

Dr Farrow is a stem cell biologist with the Adelaide Cystic Fibrosis Airway Research Group, focused on gene and stem cell therapy for cystic fibrosis, and the role of adult respiratory stem cells in sustained therapeutic outcomes.
