Welcome everybody to Episode 47, be sure to visit stemcellpodcast.com for current and past episodes and to sign up for our newsletter. This is a short episode in preparation for our trip to Sweden so there will be no interview segment, just info on the latest research papers and happenings. We begin as always with our Science Roundup sponsored by Thermo Fisher. In this episode we discuss topics ranging from, more sports stars getting stem cell therapy, a mutation that eliminates prion disease, a perspective on aging by studying stem cells, chimps getting drunk in the wild on there own, a Nobel laureate who made awful comments regarding women in science and your birthdate as a predictor of disease. We then finish off the show with a listener submitted rant on pedestrians not waiting for cars to pass before walking into road. Enjoy!
Below are all of the papers mentioned on the show. We are working on a way to categorize all of the research papers we mention and 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.
