Marcum Bernstein & Pinchuk’s Co-Managing Partner Attends International Vatican Conference in Rome for Adult Stem Cell Research
Mr. Bernstein joined other NeoStem board members and constituents in attending this special event in support of Dr. Robin L. Smith, Chairman and CEO of NeoStem, and President of the Stem for Life Foundation. The three-day conference, entitled, “Adult Stem Cells: Science and the Future of Man and Culture” featured keynote speakers, panel discussions, patient case studies, video, and breakout sessions, to create greater awareness of adult stem cells and their applications, explore the latest research and developments in the field, and discuss and debate the implications for the future of culture, medicine, religion, and public policy. In addition to the formal conference program, a special audience with Pope Benedict XVI was also arranged.
“I am personally very grateful to Dr. Smith for including me in this once in a lifetime event and applaud her remarkable efforts in leading this conference,” said Mr. Bernstein. “It was a privilege to have the opportunity to listen and learn from the most prominent scientists, doctors, and religious leaders from around the world. I congratulate all that participated on their efforts and wish them continued progress and success.”
