From 2015-2018, I blogged about the latest stem cell news for the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine. CIRM is a state agency that funds promising stem cell research to accelerate stem cell treatments to patients with unmet medical needs. I wrote over 200 blogs about exciting advancements in the field. A few of my favorites blogs are below.
Read about a California scientist’s fifteen-year journey to develop a stem cell-based therapy that could one day help patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.
Learn about a new potential stem cell-based strategy for restoring movement in patients with spinal cord injury.
The potential of stem cell technologies are endless - from printing new body parts to engineering new cancer-fighting therapies.
Here's a simple, easy way to make beating heart cells from human stem cells that will hopefully aid therapy development for heart disease.
I founded the Science of Aging (SAGE) blog while I was a postdoc at the Buck Institute. The goal of this blog is to discuss the fundamental mechanisms of aging and the latest research on extending human health/lifespan. I started SAGE to give scientists (including myself) the opportunity to develop their science communication skills and to help the Buck Institute connect with the research community and the public.
I enjoy guest blogging about my career path from PhD to science communications manager. Check out my latest guest blogs on my Features page.
