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.
