Douglas Foundation Sponsors UCSB Researchers at World Stem Cell Summit
Zhuojin Xu, Lisa Conti and Alison Blaschke received fellowships from the Douglas Foundation to attend the World Stem Cell Summit meeting in Pasadena. The meeting brought some of the world’s best stem cell scientists together to present their latest results. The Douglas Foundation was founded by motion picture icon Kirk Douglas and his wife Anne in 1964, and stands as one of the entertainment industry’s largest and oldest private philanthropic institutions. The Foundation represents the charitable interests of the Douglas family and is committed to carrying on the vision of helping others who might not otherwise be able to help themselves. The Center for Stem Cell Biology and Engineering is grateful for their generosity.
