CURE, not care.
Researching CURES for spinal cord injury, Type 1 Diabetes and other auto-immune conditions.
SCSNZ is researching treatments and cures using ADULT STEM CELLS (not embryonic).
Adult stem cells can reset immune processes back to normal and repair injuries by growing new tissue.
The Type 1 Diabetes research (supported by Chasing a Cure for Type 1 Diabetes) is a stepping stone toward using adult stem cells to cure spinal cord injury.
More about us
Since 1988, Spinal Cord Society NZ Inc (SCSNZ) has been working towards finding a cure for spinal cord injury and paralysis. The research laboratory in Dunedin has expertise with adult stem cells. While curing spinal cord injury remains the end goal for SCSNZ, the stem cell research has now diversified to search for treatments for other health conditions and is now focused on finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.
