TGIF stem cells on the brain: what’s on your mind?

Alan Trounson, the head or brains leading CIRM at one point.

I’ve always got stem cells on the brain.

What’s on your mind about stem cells?

There’s a ton going on so what specifically has got your attention? What are you thinking about? What has you excited? Depressed? Angry? Hopeful?

Headlines from the last few weeks:

  • Nuclear transfer ES cells compared to iPS cells
  • Trounson moves from CIRM and joins board of StemCells, Inc. See this striking follow up to this story.
  • STAP cell retractions
  • Angel Di Maria, Stem Cells, and the World Cup
  • Patient gets nose tissue stem cell tumor in spine 8 years after treatment
  • FDA guidelines on adipose tissue (think SVF) expected later this year
  • Other?

If you were sitting in the bar next to your stem cell buddy, what would you two talk about on this Friday TGIF?

Now in 2020, 6 years after I wrote the above post, what stem cell stuff is still on your mind? Is it all new stuff?
