Advancements in medical research are critical and life-changing. That’s why, when presented with the opportunity to work in this field, despite having no background, training, or expertise in science or medical research, I jumped on it.

Open House in Folsom, CA

Memorable Moments from the Ribbon Cutting

We are so excited to announce the opening of our newest Stem Cell Collection Center's location in Folsom, CA. We celebrated the opening of this Collection Center with food and live music at our ribbon cutting and open house.  Local business owners, the Folsom Chamber, and other Folsom neighbors joined us for a classy evening learning more about the exciting work we do. Participants enjoyed delicious cuisine from Hannibals catered food, libations provided by The Wine Smith, tasty treats from Little Bliss Cakery and tunes from Dylan Vroom. We also gave guided tours of our new Collection Center and our cutting-edge lab to our esteemed guests. Guests also had an opportunity to share what cure they wish was available at our WISH4ACURE photo booth.

LUNG CANCER PROJECT

The ever-present goal of the StemExpress Foundation is to improve the lives and outcomes of patients with all kinds of diseases. To that end, we are excited to be participating in a new lung cancer project! Researchers have created a new diagnostic tool to detect lung cancer earlier and in a less invasive way than traditional biopsies. In order to make this new screening available to the public, these scientists need small samples of blood from people with lung cancer so that they can run their test with a targeted outcome and prove its efficacy.
