Happy Stem Cell Day! It is a tumultuous time for the stem cell and regenerative medicine fields, but despite this there are concrete reasons for optimism on this Stem Cell Awareness Day. I’ve listed my top 10 below. What else gives you a sense of optimism? You can also check out CIRM’s nifty stem cell awareness day page too, from which I borrowed the below image. More trials = road to progress. There are more real, robust clinical trials than ever and they are …Read More

How cool is it that literally fuzzy new stem cells called “F-class cells” bring substantial new sharp focus to the cellular reprograming arena? Remember Project Grandiose led by the great stem cell scientist Andras Nagy? It’s a massive project intended to decipher what makes stem cells tick and how ordinary cells be changed or reprogrammed into powerful pluripotent stem cells that can make any other type of cell. I’ve heard Nagy speak before about it at meetings and this blog first reported on these fuzzy cells …Read More
