Intro:

In June 2020, we attended the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) virtual annual meeting! Here is the second of three special episodes from the meeting featuring Dr. Martin Pera, Principal Investigator at the Jackson Laboratories, who presented on the unique properties of a subset of human pluripotent stem cells with a high capacity for self-renewal.

Guest:

Dr. Martin Pera is a Principal Investigator at the Jackson Laboratories and Editor-in-Chief of the ISSCR’s journal Stem Cell Reports. His lab studies the regulation of self-renewal and pluripotency, heterogeneity in pluripotent stem cell populations, and neural specification of pluripotent stem cells.

We discuss his work presented at ISSCR 2020 on the unique properties of a subset of human pluripotent stem cells with high capacity for self-renewal.
