Recently I was very busy working with new project – Stem Cell Assays. I was thinking about total replacement of category “protocols” (which is non-functional here) and didn’t come up with anything better than separate project. It is launched now!

Stem Cell Assays is a collaborative online project aimed to bring together professionals working in the field of stem cell research and cell therapy to discuss methodological issues that are holding back progress in the field.

I’m starting this project as online collaboration with William Gunn.

Why are we starting this now?
Our inspiration for this project comes from the troubles we’ve had interpreting disparate and at times contradictory results both within our own research and between research groups. A diversity of experimental findings is nothing new in research, but given the increased clinical focus of this field, inconsistencies are now affecting clinical trials and leading to public confusion about the science. While much effort has been expended to standardize the cells and materials used for cellular therapy, these efforts have had little effect.

please welcome to visit and participate in this exciting project!
