Welcome everybody to Episode 45, 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 stem cell controversy still with Gordie Howe, does GDF11 really make you young, making morphine in yeast, restoring brain plasticity in mice, positive results from a RPE clinical trial for AMD, spreading of stem cell tourism and now FDA steps in, and more. Then we bring on Alex Hannay, product manager at Thermo Fisher to talk about the process of differentiation from pluripotent stem cells and new products that could help.
