Funding non-embryonic stem cell research is a key priority of The Brady Kohn Foundation. In 2003, The Brady Kohn Foundation Research Program was established at the University of Minnesota. Since then, the foundation has awarded $225,000 to the program. Led by the renowned John Wagner, M.D., Professor of Pediatrics and Director of the Division of Hematology-Oncology and Blood and Marrow Transplantation, these funds have not only allowed this team of researchers to investigate new areas of cord blood research, but has resulted in millions of additional dollars being awarded to the institution from the National Institute of Health.
