In June 2021, we attended the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) virtual annual meeting, and recorded daily video episodes discussing highlights of the previous 24 hours. Here is the first of five special episodes from the meeting featuring Dr. Chuck Murry from the University of Washington, who presented during the Presidential Symposium: What’s in a Germ Layer session on the first day of the meeting.
