Speaking out together for stem cell research

One hundred million Americans suffer from chronic diseases and conditions for which there are presently no cures or only palliative therapies. For the first time in history, stem cell research lights a path to the promise of regenerative medicine. On this path is hope for new therapies and possibly cures.

Our mission at Americans for Cures Foundation is to support advocates for stem cell research.

By speaking out together, we can accelerate the pace at which the hope of stem cell research becomes reality.
