The Bedford Research Foundation (BRF) is hosting two open houses Thursday, April 30 from 5:30 – 8:00 pm, and Saturday, May 2 from 4:00 – 6:00 pm for local residents and members of the biomedical, healthcare, and manufacturing industries. The event is open to the public and includes a short presentation by foundation director, Dr. Ann Kiessling, as well as demonstrations and tours of the foundation’s new space at 124 South Road, Bedford, MA. Meet staff and board members and find out more about the many exciting projects currently underway. Representative Ken Gordon and senator Mike Barrett will be on hand for the ribbon cutting ceremony.
Bedford Research Foundation is a not-for-profit biomedical institute conducting stem cell and related research to help find cures for diseases presently considered incurable. In the words of board member Victoria Staebler,:
“The stem cell research that BRF is doing is laying the foundation for regenerative cell therapy that could potentially cure not only spinal cord injury victims like him [sic], but an incredible range of diseases, from Parkinson’s to bone marrow cancer.”
Bedford Research Foundation is proud of its many innovative projects in stem cell growth and culture, programs targeted at diseases like prostatitis and prostate cancer, and services for couples living with infectious disease.
Visitors are encouraged to meet foundation representatives, tour the new BRF research and laboratory facility, and learn more about stem cell research – what it is, how far it’s come, and where it needs to go from here.
