Happy Thanksgiving everyone and thanks for tuning in to Episode 32: Parkinson’s Cell Therapy Featuring Dr. Malin Parmar. Please be sure to go to stemcellpodcast.com and enter your name and email address to win a free SCP t-shirt. As always we start the show with our science round up sponsored by Thermo-Fisher. We spend 20 minutes going over what’s hot in the literature and talk about topics such as a stem cell cure for bubble boy disease, the discovery of new sub atomic particles, a new role for nail stem cells, stem cells that alleviate seizures, new insights identifying a “homosexual” gene region, and a study showing that looking down at your phone constantly can lead to problems with your neck. We then bring on Dr. Malin Parmar to talk about her latest paper in Cell Stem Cell regarding Parkinson’s disease. This paper is very important and made main stream news everywhere. Yosif and I then end the show with a rant about going over allotted time in presentations. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving.
