Gladstone nabs $5 million from Roddenberry Foundation for new stem cell center

The Gladstone Institutes is boldly going where few stem cells have gone before.
With the help of a $5 million gift from Roddenberry Foundation — set up to honor late “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry — the San Francisco-based J. David Gladstone Institutes will build off the stem cell work of part-time Gladstone researcher Dr. Shinya Yamanaka.
Gladstone officials scheduled a press conference for late Wednesday afternoon and did not provide details for publication prior to the event, but told the San Francisco Chronicle for a story in Wednesday morning’s paper that the Roddenberry Foundation’s gift would go toward a Roddenberry Center for Stem Cell Biology and Medicine.
