Iowa, well known for its cornfields, cattle, and cash farms, is located in the midwestern United States, a region sometimes called the American Heartland. Stem cell research in Iowa is at an exciting stage in the 21st century. Intensive laboratory-based work is under way, ranging from stem cell transplantation, understanding mesenchymal and neural stem cells, stem cell role in traumatic spinal cord injury, stem cell mobilization, cancer stem cells, stem cell regeneration, stem cell isolation, and a newer concept of a stem cell’s role in wound healing. Topics of interest for the stem cell experts in Iowa have ranged from diabetes mellitus, inflammatory bowel disease, wound healing, severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), cancer, spinal cord injury, vision, bone, infertility, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
