Since 1950, we have led the effort to permanently protect nearly 110 million acres of wilderness. We have been at the forefront of nearly every major public lands victory.

 

Our Mission

The Pennsylvania Cancer and Regenerative Medicine Research Center (PCARMRC) will function as a hub-and-spoke model for regenerative medical inquiry, spearheading research and collaborating with similar centers around the country and the world.  Recent breakthroughs in cancer immune therapy have resulted in new biotechnology companies and value for patient’s lives. New discoveries in regenerative medicine are at a similar discovery tipping point. The interface between cancer, stem cells, and regeneration is at an historic moment. Creating a culture in which biotechnology companies are a vehicle to unlock value is key to bringing benefits rapidly to our patients.

Dr. Pestell’s research in cell cycle, prostate cancer, oncology and stem cells is highly cited; he is ranked first in the world by Google scholar citations in cell cycle and prostate cancer, and second in the world for oncology. Pestell is funded by more than $1 million each year in grant support from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and the Falk Foundation. He is the recipient of numerous national and international awards and recognitions, including election as Fellow, American Association for the Advancement of Science.

The PCARMRC is part of the Baruch S Blumberg Institute at the PA Biotechnology Center in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.  The Blumberg Institute, under its president, Dr. Tim Block, has a remarkable track record of success in developing companies that rapidly translate urgently needed medical discoveries into clinical practice.
