In this episode we touch on the topic of cancer and how stem cells are relevant for disease progression and potential therapeutics. In the science roundup we cover zombie bees, stem cells for baldness, dipping cells in acid to make stem cells, and how to identify the difference between iPSCs and hESCs.
We then interview another stem cell pioneer, Dr. Sean Morrison, who is internationally recognized for his work in understanding the mechanisms of stem cell regulatory mechanisms and how this is relevant in cancer. Then of course, we finish up with a signature SCP rant. Enjoy!
We are working on a way to categorize all of the research papers we mention on the show and provide, 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.
