AN EVENING WITH DR. JEANNE LORING Photos and story by Bryan Schraier


cientists, guests and sponsors gathered at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center for an evening with Dr. Jeanne Loring, whose research into induced pluripotent stem cells is fueling groundbreaking investigation into therapies for Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and more. Hosting the event was Missouri Cures Education Foundation, which promotes medical advances to improve the health of Missourians. After drinks and light appetizers, guests cheered as the Missouri Cures Volunteer Advocacy Award went to Dr. Ben Borowsky and Robert Klein. Loring then fascinated the audience by speaking on the possible therapeutic potential of the stem cells she’s been researching.

In 2006, we ran the stem cell campaign here in the state of Missouri to make sure stem cell research stayed legal. So now all medical research that’s legal on the federal level is legal in our state – so we can bring in the best and the brightest researchers at our research institutions, who are working hard to find cures and therapies for devastating diseases. Our mission is to promote and protect medical research in Missouri.
