Strangest stem cell event of 2012: Moriguchi’s fake iPS cell transplants

I’m doing a poll on the strangest stem cell-related event of the year in 2012.

stem cell poll

The results are in and people seem to think all the candidate strange events were indeed odd, but the strangest of all was deemed the Japanese scientist Moriguchi faking that he had done iPS cell transplants on humans, a story picked up by the largest newspaper in the world as a front page story.

Lord knows what strangeness awaits us in the stem cell world in 2013!

Stay tuned for my predictions for 2013!
