Dr. Fasano and Dr. Ganat

On this episode we review the Next Gen Stem Cell Conference from earlier in the month.  During the conference we interviewed 5 stem cell scientists live and put them all together for this show.  In addition to these great guests, we review the literature as always. Topics include the biggest sperm ever, C-kit+ stem cells don’t make heart, heart on a chip technology, a new element on the periodic table, and iPSCs from schizophrenia patients.  After that, we end with a rant about bathroom air fresheners!
