The Stem Cell Podcast is so excited to bring you our 25th episode. Thanks to all of our listeners for making the show a success. We begin the show like always recapping the latest science news including topics ranging from more fraud regarding publications, what the heck does the impact factor mean, development of an anti-HIV tampon, novel stem cell discovery using zebrafish, Dr. Vacanti to step down, and a possible lipofectamine alternative. Then we bring on Dr. Paul Knoepfler to recap the STAP cell story in the light of the tragic death of Dr. Yoshiki Sasai. We discuss this and a wide variety of topics related to publishing in science with Dr. Knoepfler. We then close the show with a rant on depression and its acceptance in the US.
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.
