In Conversation with Angie Coiro

How close are we to being able to harness the body’s own healing powers, to unveiling the mystery of the stem cell and its power for regenerating tissue that is healthy, and repairing tissue that is diseased or damaged? Join us as two experts explore the power, the promise and the problems of stem cells.
Uta Grieshammer PhD is a developmental biologist by training and now a Science Officer at CIRM (California Institute for Regenerative Medicine).
Dr. Jill Helms is a professor in the Department of Surgery at Stanford University and a researcher looking at stem cells as a way to promoting wound healing and repairing bone fractures.
