Dr. Florence Sabin, Great American Scientist and Trailblazer for Women in Science

I am currently researching an article on the “discovery” of stem cells and the earliest stem cell research. Stay tuned for that. As I’ve been educating myself on the early history of stem cells I became familiar with a scientist that I had not previously heard of during my career who played a key role …

Who discovered stem cells? The history goes way back

Pappenheim-stem
