Blogging from the Houston Stem Cell Summit
Dr. Centeno here…I’m speaking at the Houston Stem Cell Summit at 9:20 am, but Arnie Caplan (the father of the Mesenchymal Stem Cell concept) is giving a great lecture on adult stem cells. Interesting that he’s also arguing for a different regulatory approach toward stem cells. This is because unlike a drug chemical, these cells react to their environment just like other tissue transplants. Very interesting talk at the world’s first stem cell conference to entertain both pathways for medical innovation-physician and pharma.
