Welcome to another episode of THE Stem Cell Podcast. Thanks everyone for the continued support and be sure to visit stemcellpodcast.com to sign up for our e-newsletter and see all the great resources we have there for everyone. What a great show we have this week featuring awesome new stem cell news and a great interview with a real stem cell “big fish.” We start as always with our science round up sponsored by Thermo-Fisher where we discuss some of the most recent science/stem cell news. Some of the topics discussed on this episode range from approval of a 3 parent gene therapy, stem cells for breast implants, stem cell derived brain cells to repair radiation damage, a rapid HIV test on your iPhone, a detailed bacteria map of NYC, info about tattoos on the ancient iceman, and optogenetics and neurons. Then we bring on world renowned stem cell researcher Dr. Lorenz Studer to talk about his work, latest paper, and progress towards a new therapy for Parkinson’s Disease. Then all three of us rant about Facebook invites to play games. Enjoy!
