Researchers at ground zero of human embryonic stem cell research

The New York Times has a Q&A with Stanford’s Renee Reijo Pera, who “works at ground zero of the controversy over human embryonic stem cells.” It is a nice summary of relevant scientific questions, with a surprising take on Bush’s stem cell policy, plus a portrait of a scientist as a caring, curious individual.

The journal Stem Cells has also published a more technical series of interviews for the ten-year anniversary of human embryonic stem cell lines. Read interviews with Peter Andrews, Alan Trounson, and Rudolf Jaenisch

Also, see an interview with John Gearhart in Embo Reports.
