It’s not often you get the chance to ask a group of world class experts any question you like about stem cells and stem cell research, but that’s what we are offering you. We’re going to hold our next Facebook Live “Ask the Stem Cell Team” event focused solely on your questions with answers from our Team here at CIRM.
We are still finalizing the date – likely early December before the holiday madness hits – but we’d like to start collecting your questions now. So, let us know what you’d like to know.
It can be anything from how do stem cells work (come to think of it I’d like to know that myself) to what is the latest in using stem cells to help people recovering from a stroke or heart attack, battling cancer or caring for a loved one experiencing Alzheimer’s or dementia.
We will do our best to answer as many of these as we can, and of course we are also ready to answer any questions you post on our Facebook “Live” page during the event itself. Any questions we can’t get to on the day we’ll answer in a blog at a later date.
So. Send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
