Stem cell culture methods – free webinar

Stem cell culture methods webinarThe therapeutic promise of stem cells is immense and is by no means a pipe dream. An excellent example of this is the transplant of hematopoietic stem cells for the treatment of hematopoietic malignancies, which is now routine clinical practice.
