Susan L. Solomon founded The New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) in 2005 to accelerate cures for the major diseases of our time using stem cell research. Over the last decade, NYSCF has been the catalyst for essential, cutting-edge stem cell research, which offers the greatest hope for medical advances we have ever known. To date, NYSCF’s research has been named the #1 medical breakthrough of the year by Science and twice by TIME magazine. NYSCF has set the agenda for innovative scientific research, and has enabled some of the most important discoveries in the field, bringing us closer to the better treatments and cures we seek for a range of diseases.
