020209-1537-profcolinmc1.jpgCryo-Save India today announced that their new Scientific Director Professor Colin McGuckin, will be visiting India between February 27 and March 3, 2009. Prof. McGuckin, who made a medical breakthrough in 2005 with the creation of the world’s first “mini liver” from umbilical cord blood, will share his plans on integrating new scientific technologies which may substantially speed up treatments for life-threatening illnesses, injuries and disabilities. Cryo-Save India, who has taken the initiative to organize the Professor’s visit, believes that this will act as an impetus for people in India to accept stem cell banking as a new form of health protection for the future.

During his visit, Prof. McGuckin will engage with regulatory authorities to share information that will shape future direction and progress in cord blood banking and advances in patient treatments. He will also talk about his latest discoveries in Regenerative Medicine, including his recent creation of the world’s first artificial pancreas, which may have important implications in diabetes.

Prof McGuckin, who has recently been appointed as Scientific Director for Cryo-Save, will be travelling to Bangalore, New Delhi and Mumbai.

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.
