For stem cell educational outreach I did a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” or Reddit AMA about 5-6 months ago on stem cells and the response was great.
There were so many wonderful questions and comments. I only wished I could have gotten to all of them. In total there were more than 1,100 comments. Yeah, people are really excited and interested in stem cells.
In that spirit of answer more questions, I talked with Reddit and we have a Stem Cell AMA 2.0 coming up this Monday, August 11. Of course a lot has happened in the stem cell field in the last 6 months as well.
I hope you’ll join us there for a great Reddit AMA discussion and, per the name, ask me anything on stem cells.
Update: You can go to the link I included on Monday morning and you can start posting questions in the morning EDT. I’m planning to start answering questions and discussing things with people no later than 1PM EDT/10AM PDT.

I read where you said that you expect big things from stem cell research for diabetes, heart disease, and orthopedics in the coming years. How long before you think there will be therapies for liver diseases?
I can’t find the link and don’t know how to enter the discussion? But I would be more than glad if you could answer my questions:
1. Is it right that stem cells from the teeth are better than other stem cells?
2. Would you advise to keep stem cells from the milk teeth in a specialized stem cell bank?
3. Would you advise to keep stem cells from the teeth and the cord blood? Or is one kind of stem cells enough?
4. Do you think reprogrammed IPS-Cells are as good as own stem cells from the cord blood? Or are the stem cells from the cord blood better?
5. Do you know of an opportunity to heal a bone cyst by stem cells?
6. How can I divide between serious and non serious stem cell applications?
7. It is already possible to rebuild little organoids. But why researchers don’t try to rebuild small structures like vein valves? In such small structures it shouldn’t be such a big problem to rebuild the blood vessels like in big organs?
Thank you for your kind reply,

I will try to get to your questions here later.
Thanks for your help in advance 🙂
My question is:
Is there any promising hope in the nearest future for poliomyelitis patients to be cured with the use of stem cells therapy? Am a 39 years old polio patient. I have a paralysis and severe muscles atrophy in my left arm and lower limbs.
I want to know about stem cells for copd,I think I am going to Fla for this some time in October and would like some information about the places that do this and if they are on the up and up.I wish there was a place in N.J. that did this. Thank you Dee
Sounds interesting. I would like to join the discussion, but I don`t know how and at what time?
Good point. I will update the post on this. You can go to the link I included on Monday morning and you can start posting questions in the morning EDT. I’m planning to start answering questions and discussing things with people no later than 1PM EDT/10AM PDT.
