Stem Cells in Your Face: Treating ALS with a Disease in a Dish

To a stem cell scientist, “Disease in a Dish” describes a powerful way to study human disease in the lab using a Nobel Prize winning technique. But to a non-scientist it sounds more like a scene from some disgusting sci-fi horror cooking show. Our latest video takes a lighthearted approach to help clear up any head scratching over this phrase. The video focuses on CIRM-funded ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) research by the Robert Baloh laboratory at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
