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.
