I was giving up this site for Lent but lasted 3 days!

Interesting article about stem cells for diabetes which shows how fast this area is moving.

Somewhat related, as this company is aiming at diabetes too. First publicly traded company to try embryonic stem cell therapy.


Human stem cell tests could begin this summer

The CEO of Geron is planning embryonic stem cell tests in humans this spring if the biotech meets the FDA's "high bar."
