The Alliance for Regenerative Medicine (ARM) website has a new look that is worth checking out. ARM is pushing on PR too with a new foundation to “Promote Understanding and Acceptance of Potentially Curative Cell and Gene Therapies.”

Right-To-Profit? Over at Science-Based Medicine, the ever-blunt David Gorski dissects the new Right-To-Try law and has a whole section on his strong views on stem cells clinics as well as how the RTT law may have some bad impact there.

Stem cell scientist & politics. At this point stem cell scientist Hans Keirstead slightly leads in the run for 2nd place in his California congressional primary race, but just by a few dozen votes. Too close to call so far!
