    Great work Grammy.

    Well it looks any human trials are still 3 to 5 years away from Jerry.


      The W2W Science and Advocacy symposium featured various presentations at many different stages of research and development.

      There were brand new basic science "discovery" level projects like Dr. Silver described and some mentioned by Dr. Hans Keirstead, Dr. Os Steward and Dr. Murray Blackmore that have started. Their research therapy won't be on the market tomorrow.

      There were also "pre-clinicals" like Paul Lu's project and others.

      There were even "translational level" CIRM funded projects like Dr. Leif Havtons, cauda equina and conus injury project which is like the injury that you have Jawaid. That particular injury level work was presented by Dr. Leif Havton. His "translational level" work is presented HERE but it is not ready for humans yet and could be several more years before they're ready. I believe he's starting his 2nd year of a 3 year research funding grant. Dr. Ravi Bellamkondas new project with ISRT would be in the translational category also.

      The human research level this year was a presentation by StemCells Inc. with Stephen Huhn and Aileen Anderson of Reeve Irvine Research Center in Irvine, California where the 2012 conference was held. The trial is scheduled to end in March 2016.

      The listing of current human level research trials are listed HERE on the U2FP site that you are looking to enroll in Jawaid.
