Welcome everybody to Episode 46, 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 sex hormones regulate stem cells, status of the female “Viagra” pill, differentiation of pluripotent stem cells on a chip, a new CRISPR method to make knock-ins, a quiz that tells you when you’re going to die, and more. Then we bring on Heather Rooke, science director at ISSCR to preview the 2015 ISSCR conference that begins in 2 weeks in Stockholm Sweden. THE Stem Cell Podcast will be there recording live from the floor. We then finish off the show with a rant on Microsoft Word not recognizing science words. Enjoy!
