      Hey guys was just wondering did anyone see the documentary Stem Cell Universe with Stephen Hawking?It aired here last night and is amazing to watch.For anyone whose interested in Stem Cell therapies and what they can do its a must see.Reading that they done this to a rat or done that to a rat isnt very thrilling but actually seeing what they can do is unbelieveable.The power of these little guys is incredible and no doubt a true cure for hearing loss if we ever get there.Which is why Stanford and the Hearing Restoration project are incredible and reminds me not to take for granted the work theyre doing.P.S dont know if this belongs in research news but didnt where else to post it:)

      I assume this is the correct thread to post this:

      Quote:
      Breakthrough in direct conversion of human cells from one type to another

      In a breakthrough for regenerative medicine and tissue engineering, researchers have developed a tool that will help scientists directly transform human cells from one type to another. They see the breakthrough as bringing regenerative medicine a step closer to growing whole organs from patients' own cells.
      End quote.

      You can find the article on: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/305308.php?tw

      This should be good news for hearing restoration if I understand correctly. But when....
