Welcome everybody to Episode 42, 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, genomic analyses of brain tumors, cheap long lasting cell phone batteries, expansion microscopy, feeder stem cell culture may be better than feeder free, hESCs are not being used as gold standard as much anymore, stem cells for dogs, a new RIKEN president, a new possible model for liver disease using iPSCs, etc. Then we bring on neuroscientist and stem cell pioneer Dr. Fred “Rusty” Gage, a professor at the Salk Institute where he discusses past, present, and future work of stem cells and neurogenesis. We then finish off the show with a rant on packing peanuts.
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.
