SAGE Crossroads has put up a video and podcast interview with stem cell researchers Woo Suk Hwang and Jerry Schatten, filmed prior to their public split. There is no transcript yet, unfortunately, and probably won't be for a few weeks given past timing - so dive in while it's fresh. If you have an interest in the advance of stem cell based regenerative medicine, you should certainly take the time to watch or listen to the interview. This field of research offers a plausible path to effective therapies for a wide range of age-related conditions and degeneration. The earliest results will likely involve the replacement of failing, vital tissue - small regions in the heart, liver, or parts of the brain, for example - but cell therapies ultimately offer much more than that.
