California’s stem cell agency awarded $25 million in grants Thursday to develop new treatments — and researchers at the UC Davis School of Medicine got more than $7 million. Dermatology professor Roslyn Rivkah Isseroff got a $5 million grant to continue research on wound care that uses stem cells to treat diabetic foot ulcers. And Diana Farmer, a professor and chair of surgery at the UC Davis Medical Center, got almost $2.2 million to continue work on a placental stem cell therapy for spina bifida, a common birth defect that causes paralysis and incontinence.
