Cryo-Save Group, Europe’s Largest Adult Stem Cell Banking Company announced the appointment of its new Scientific Director, Professor Colin McGuckin. In his new role, Professor McGuckin will be responsible for integrating new scientific technologies and keeping Cryo-Save’s storage services at the leading edge.

Professor McGuckin has made several advancements in stem cells including the creation of a “mini liver” from the umbilical cord blood, nervous tissues and blood vessels from cord blood cells as well as “pancreatic islets” – a major producer of insulin for treating diabetes amongst others.

Armed with 20 years of experience in stem cells, Professor McGuckin is an opinion leader who has been called upon by governments and hospitals around the world. He is also President of the Novus Sanguis Consortium, which brings together leading adult stem cell researchers and clinicians from across the world to work on specific diseases of the human condition, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes and organ degeneration.

Professor McGuckin stated, “My vocation is to treat patients with umbilical cord blood and I believe Cryo-Save, with their innovative and responsible program for storing cord blood will help achieve this goal faster, for more patients on an international scale.”

Rob Koremans, CEO, Cryo-Save said, “Prof. McGuckin’s recruitment is an auxiliary step in our efforts to put Cryo-Save at the forefront of the global stem cell market place. Gaining such tremendous scientific know how will help sustain financial security and contributions to patients”.
