Stem cell research here and abroad is going full steam ahead, and great progress is being made. I find two aspects particularly interesting. As research tools, stem cells have allowed the elucidation of molecular pathways involved in cellular differentiation. I have seen papers where trophoblasts have been converted into stem cells that can be used therapeutically. Another area of progress has been in use of exosomes and microparticles from stem cells to rejuvenate tissues such as cardiac tissues. Also the use of stem cells to generate cardiospheres for implantation into damaged cardiac tissues. Similar work for treatment of neural damage is also underway.Oh, can any of you Libtards tell us how well stem cell research is going? Didn't Kalifonia put TWO BILLION DOLLAR$ of the peoples money to fund stem cell research. Money they did not have!!!!
Sort of like money dumped into wind mills and solar panels!
Here are just a few interesting links.

You know Watson and Crick described the DNA double helix in the early 1950s, and revolutionary methods of PCR-based diagnostics in medicine did not come about until 40-50 years later. do you think Watson and Crick were failures?
