StemExpress CEO at Center of Planned Parenthood Scandal

When F. Scott Fitzgerald said, “Show me a hero, and I’ll write you a tragedy,” he might have had someone like Cate Dyer in mind. Dyer is the 36-year-old founder and CEO of StemExpress, the fetal tissue procurement company at the center of the Planned Parenthood scandal. Lauded as a pioneer in promoting life-saving research on HIV, cancer, and heart disease, Dyer founded StemExpress in 2010 as a for-profit company which operates as the broker between research institutes and Universities which need tissue for their studies and hospitals (and Planned Parenthood) which donate that tissue.
