Maryland Stem Cell Research Fund – Brief Overview
By the Governor and the Maryland General Assembly through the Maryland Stem Cell Research Act of 2006 during the 2006 General Assembly Session.
The purpose of the Fund is to promote state-funded stem cell research and cures through grants and loans to public and private entities in the State. The Fund is a special, non-lapsing fund that is not subject to the State Finance and Procurement Article.
The Commission will establish an independent scientific peer review committee composed of scientifically recognized experts in the field of stem cell research. The Committee will review, evaluate, rank, and rate research proposals for State-funded stem cell research based on procedures and guidelines established by the Commissions and in a manner that gives due consideration to the scientific, medical, and ethical implications of the research. The Committee will then make recommendations to the Commission, based on the ranking and ratings awarded to each research proposal and according to its scientific merit. Members of the Committee are not eligible to receive a grant or loan from the Fund and may not reside in Maryland.
Provided by the Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO), an independent entity established by the Maryland General Assembly in 1998 to facilitate the creation of businesses and foster their growth in all regions of the State through the development and commercialization of technology.
At StemCell ARTS, we offer a family of non-surgical adult stem cell and blood platelet treatments for common injuries and degenerative joint conditions, such as osteoarthritis and avascular necrosis. These stem cell procedures utilize a patient’s own cells to help heal damaged tissues, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, spinal disc, or bone.
As a viable alternative for individuals who may be considering elective surgery or joint replacement due to injury or arthritis, we offer these procedures to patients wishing to avoid lengthy periods of downtime and painful rehabilitation that come with invasive surgeries. Stem cell treatments are the most trusted and effective orthopedic stem cell procedures currently available.
Our clinic contains the original stem cell-based musculoskeletal practice in the U.S., holding more stem cell orthopedics experience than any other clinic. We are also physician leaders in stem cell therapy for orthopedic injuries in terms of research presentations, publications, and academic achievements.

Scientists around the world are racing to unlock cures for diseases like diabetes and
heart disease. And you can help. Your donation can provide the blood and stem cells
scientists need for their research.
Researchers using stem cells in their work are getting ever closer to exciting cures. One project nearing its final phase of testing is a cure for sickle cell disease. Scientists would remove bone marrow from a patient, fix the genetic defect in the stem cells, and reintroduce those cells to the patient to create a healthy blood system.
