“It almost sounds like science fiction. Almost.” While seated in his office, Mark V. Sauer, MD, Chief of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, leans forward in his chair and smiles, perhaps reflecting upon the magnitude of the research in which he and colleagues created the first disease-specific embryonic stem cell line – turning what was once considered to be imagined science into reality.

    Scientists Develop Technique to Help Prevent Inherited Disorders

There’s good news on the genetic-disease front, thanks in part to Dr. Mark Sauer, Program Director at the Center for Women’s Reproductive Care. He is part of a team of scientists from The New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) Laboratory and Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) dedicated to advance the field of stem cell research. They have developed a technique that may prevent children from inheriting certain genetic diseases. The study is published online in the prestigious journal Nature.
