Need a fix of some stem cell good news? I do.

It has been a bumpy 2016 so far for the stem cell field and many challenges have popped up.

So today at lunch and needing at least a short break from grant writing,  I went looking for stem cell good news including interesting studies, promising trials, and frankly things that just sound unusual or even weird.

I’ve listed these below.

Have a good weekend…you know what I’ll be doing: working on my grant.

If you know of other stem cell good news pass it along in the comments.

  1. It’s nice to read interesting stories. It can actually give you different moods and at the end of the day you will always learn something new to that story. Anyway, great idea for sharing this with us.
