The Science Round Up
For this week’s round-up, STEMCELL Technologies would like to introduce Cord Blood News, a newsletter that we haven’t mentioned on the podcast yet. Sent to almost 5000 researchers globally, Cord Blood News has been summarizing the field of cord blood stem cell research for 8 years. Subscribe for free at www.cordbloodresearchnews.com
This week, in the world-famous Science Round Up, we discuss the latest science/stem cell news including:
- Cows produce HIV antibodies.
- Rising temps = less commercial flights?
- CRISPR to store movies in DNA.
- One night of bad sleep can increase Alzheimer’s proteins.
- New approach to kill brain tumor cells.
- Schizophrenia induced mice by injecting iPSC derived cells.
- Arteries from stem cells.
The interview with Dr. Mark Tomishima
For the interview portion of the show, The Stem Cell Podcast and STEMCELL Technologies welcome Dr. Mark Tomishima. Mark is an Associate Laboratory Member and Sloan Kettering Institute Stem Cell Research Facility Manager. Mark joins us to talk about all things stem cells, including his latest published work on standardizing protocols that start with Pluripotent Stem Cells.
The interview portion of this episode is brought to you STEMCELL Technologies. STEMCELL Technologies provides a cutting-edge cryopreservation reagent called FreSR-S™
- Traditionally, human pluripotent stem cells are frozen as clumps to facilitate their recovery post-thaw.
- Unlike conventional methods, FreSR-S™ has been designed to cryopreserve pluripotent stem cells in single-cell suspensions.
- With recovery efficiency and viability rates of up to 80%, FreSR-S™ greatly improves the complete cryopreservation process.
- Furthermore, stable karyotypes have been consistently reported after multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
- For more information about efficiently cryopreserving pluripotent stem cells, please visit stemcell.com/fresr-s
After the interview, we close the show with a signature SCP rant.[Read more…]
