Today’s post lists the best stem cell blogs and more generally the top biology blogs as well as websites. Making lists of “the best” of anything is fun yet tricky. However, I feel that it can also serve a purpose as a resource. You might also enjoy these other “top” lists I’ve done including List of 50 stem cell influencers on Twitter to follow in 2019, a list of top stem cell journals, and for fun, Elephant in the lab series: top list of science excuses.

The past few weeks have brought some exciting, thought-provoking stem cell papers and developments in the regenerative medicine field. Here’s a list of stem cell papers in the media that struck me as particularly cool along with some other developments in the field. Human Stem Cells Fight Parkinson’s Disease in Monkeys Organoids Reveal Clues to Gut-Brain Communication (see image) Stimulation of 3D osteogenesis by mesenchymal stem cells using a nanovibrational bioreactor Health Canada investigates Canadian stem cell clinics Stem cells: Japan’s scientific ‘moonshot’ – Financial …Read More
One of the special projects on this blog is something called the Stem Cell Outreach Program for Education (SCOPE). My goal with SCOPE has been to provide a basic page of facts about stem cells in as many languages as possible with the motto of “Stem cells not lost in translation!” It has been a big hit and as the number of languages has grown, the number of page views of my white paper “What are stem cells?” in languages besides English has skyrocketed. For example, as of July 2017 here …Read More
I had fun doing an interview on This Week in Science (TWIS) this week with Dr. Kiki Sanders. The video is below. We talked specifically about CRISPR, designer babies, gene drive, and my new book GMO Sapiens. Check out the book. TWIS is so awesome and I am now going back to watch their older episodes.
