Welcome everybody to Episode 41, be sure to visit stemcellpodcast.com for current and past episodes and to sign up for our newsletter. We begin as always with our Science Roundup sponsored by Thermo Fisher. In this episode we discuss topics ranging from, the c. elegans worm that can detect cancer in urine samples, a new autism gene, germ line genetic modifications, stem cells from sheep for face cream, a new way to make 3D mini-lungs in the dish and a new protein involved in making neurons from stem cells. Then we bring on Dr. Eirini Papapetrou, an associate professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai where she discusses her work and latest paper on using stem cells to model blood diseases containing a chromosomal deletion. We then finish off the show with a rant on the company refrigerator rules.
Below are all of the papers mentioned on the show. We are working on a way to categorize all of the research papers we mention and possibly even provide audio summaries. Enter in your name and e-mail address below, and we will notify you of when this feature is available.
