A while back you couldn't throw a stick without hitting a discussion about stem cell research. what happened to it? Is it still going on?

Do people still say PP sells stem cells?

tech CEOs are extracting stem cells from 4 year olds getting diptheria vaccines and putting it into their knees now

i watched the W live address/announcement on this with my parents in 2001. i was 12 years old. that's the first presidential address i can remember watching outside of a SOTU or two from Clinton.

my parents were and still are anti-abortion. the stem cell research announcement was a big deal to them. i can't remember how they felt about Bush's decision afterwards. i remember the whole announcement seemed to hinge on the use of existing frozen embryos.

Does everyone just think it's okay now? wasn't there a big court case about it?

just finished working on a stem cell clinical trial, they were injected into patients brains.

Until very recently, I somehow held the notion that all stem cells came from the spine. I guess I never thought about stem cells and for some reason my brain automatically made the association stem cells = stem of a human = spine of a human. It was one of those don don's that really makes you question your own intelligence.

mainly because lady wop’s family gets the alzheimer’s/dementia. On the off chance they’ll figure shit out the next few decades.

that cartoon is ridiculously over clever

I worked in a stem cell lab as a temp for like a year it was dope. My boss said that a lot of stem cell therapy now is people just injecting shitloads of stem cells into their bodies being like I dunno can't hurt?

wow post number 1234 came and went just like that

my favorite thing about stem cells I learned working there is that the whole field was pioneered in a way by this guy who was generally ignored, spent his entire career in something like a home lab figuring out a way to induce testicle cancer in rats. Since tumors can grow masses of other kinds of cells in a similar way to how pluripotent stem cells can become different kinds of cells, this became super important research years later. So this dude just kept plugging away, giving rats nut tumors, no one in science giving a shit at all about his work. And he changed the world. Believe in yourself.

I do not really know the differences between different kinds of stem cells. Pluripotent ones can become all sorts of different kinds of stuff and can be grown in a lab, so it takes time, equipment and money but it's pretty consistent. Maybe you have to start in the very beginning with some feeder cells from human tissue or something? Most of my time in the lab was spent playing Simpsons Tapped Out on my phone.

I did learn the cheapest way to grow stem cells is to use mice as your growth 'media,' which turns the mice into stem cell factories until their bodies explode. My boss was like, it is... not how you want to grow stem cells.

Yeah he was really into these unusual kind of tumors where like, a whole tooth can grow in the tumor. Or a mass of hair. And it more likely if they're testicle tumors.

Yes, I'm sure they are smiling, looking down from rat heaven right now.

Sorry, I don't mean to be an asshole, I don't even have an opinion on animal testing. thx for the info about ur job

no yeah if you use the mice method they physically rupture, the life of a lab animal is def not a cool lot.

it was a big reason why my sis dropped her neuroscience major after working in a lab.

i guess what i was driving at before is that, if stem cells are at all scarce, i feel like we shouldn't be injecting them into rich ppl's knees lol. but, i dunno, that's capitalism i guess
