Dear all,

Another advance in nerve stem cells. This is one area where advances are being reported almost every week. Somewhere along the line this must benefit us.

Nerve stem cells

Dear all,

A bit more information on the nerve stem cells.

As usual 5 - 10 years is the timescale for transplants of stem cells, but nerve stem cells could be used for testing treatments in two years. Perhaps some of the scientists need some incentive to get these treatments to market in a quicker timescale e.g. get in done in three years and we'll give you $1m or, if it's not sorted in three years you'll face a firing squad!
