What might be most surprising about this week’s recommended stem cell research reads is there’s nothing about COVID-19 in here.
There are, however, some really great papers. And we can expect more developments on the cellular medicine for COVID-19 front coming soon.
Before I jump into the reads, if you haven’t already check out our new Medical Advisory Board.
We also have a new Fact-Checking resource.
What do you think of the new look and material here on The Niche?

- Harvard stem cell research lead Jonathan Hoggatt joins Moderna as director of hematology, FierceBiotech. You can see a funny picture of Jonathan above, which happens to be his Twitter pic.
- Stem cells can give new life to ovaries and potentially restore fertility, Salon. It seems like there are ever more stories about how stem cells are going to aid in infertility treatments.
