Happy New Year to all of our Stem Cell Podcast fans! 2014 was a great year and Yosif and I look forward to another great year bringing you the latest and greatest from the world of stem cells and beyond. Just a reminder to visit www.stemcellpodcast.com for all of our episodes and to join our newsletter so we can keep you informed about what is going on with the show. In this show, as always, we start with the science round up brought to you by Thermo Fisher and we discuss the latest hot papers from a wide variety of topics including how cancer might just be bad luck, telomerase inhibition in cancer stem cells a new therapy, making sperm and eggs from stem cells, James Watson selling his Nobel Prize, a new sendai virus for iPSC generation, etc… Then we bring on a post-doctoral fellow from the lab of Michel Sadelain, Dr. Maria Themeli to talk to us about her work using stem cells to create killer T cells to seek and destroy cancer cells…a really cool idea and amazing technology. We finish off the show ranting about iPhone updates.
