Regenerative Medicine in Jordan(Preface)

Abdallah A. Abbadi

Abstract


Recently Jordan University (JU) has approved the establishment and support of a regenerative medicine center under the name of Cell Therapy Center (CTC). JU has budgeted for it and the CTC is expected to be housed in a building especially built for that purpose. Once established, it will be the first of its kind in the country and perhaps the first in any Arab country.
The CTC is designed to house multi-function units: both for clinical grade tissue products and for research purposes. It has ample space to accommodate scientists from various fields of biological, medical, pharmaceutical and chemical sciences.

The aim of the CTC is set to bring Jordan in line with the latest and most advanced field of stem cell research. The target is to generate cells and cell products for therapeutic purposes to treat conditions which are currently do not have treatment or have an unsatisfactory treatment.

The step taken by JU is a timely and welcomed one. It reflects forward and positive thinking on behalf of the university leadership. It definitely carries the research of JU to a sophisticated and advanced level with direct application and benefit to patients.
