Two new related publications from EMC are available here. The publications look at whether mesenchymal stromal cells are immune cells, and how mesenchymal stem cells immune cells in different ways.
MERLIN brochure and flyer are now available here.
The International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) has launched a new website to help patients and their families make informed decisions about stem cell treatments, clinics and their health. The site includes extensive information on clinical trials and how science becomes medicine. You can visit the site here: http://www.closerlookatstemcells.org/
