Cafe Scientifique: Talk: Stem cells and their potentialStem cells hold a promise of "enormous potential" for healing, says Dr. Jill Helms, a surgery professor and stem cell researcher at Stanford University hospital, who will speak at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 10, at SRI International in Menlo Park as part of the Cafe Scientifique program.
"At the end," she said, "I hope the audience will understand why stem cell biologists think that regenerative medicine may well be the most important scientific advancement of our lifetimes."
