Dr. Cynthia Coleman

Cynthia investigates the application of adult human bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells to treat osteoarthritis. The aim of her ongoing research is to assess the combination of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and growth/differentiation factor 5 (GDF-5) as a potential therapeutic for arthritis, specifically focusing on the deposition of extracellular matrix proteins.

Prof. Frank Barry

Frank Barry is Senior Scientist at the UHN Arthritis Programme at the Krembil Research Institute and Professor of Cellular Therapy at the Regenerative Medicine Institute (REMEDI), National University of Ireland Galway. His research interests include stem cell biology and the development of cell-based repair strategies for osteoarthritis. He is Principle Investigator on the CALIN project, Coordinator of the ADIPOA2 Clinical Trial and Senior Investigator in the AutoStem, RESPINE and StarStem projects.

In a career that has spanned both industry and academic research he has contributed to the fields of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine by developing innovative and successful cellular therapies for tissue repair, joint injury and arthritic disease. He has published widely in the areas of mesenchymal stromal cell biology, cartilage repair and cellular therapy (16700 citations, h-index 55). Frank Barry has been the recipient of the Marshall Urist Award for excellence in tissue regeneration research from the Orthopaedic Research Society.
