Good science communication is an overarching goal for us at Signals Blog, so when we find examples of others doing a great job (and there are lots of them), we like to share. This week I came across a TED Talk by Nina Tandon, a biomedical engineer at Columbia University (coincidentally, the same lab as our blogger Holly Wobma), who presents a jargon-free introduction to tissue engineering in less than 7 minutes. We give it two engineered thumbs up.
Our regular feature, Right Turn, showcases the “lighter” side of stem cells and regenerative medicine. Every Friday, we will bring you cartoons, photos, videos and other content that may be just as thought provoking as the written submissions that you are used to finding here, but they definitely won’t be blogs.
As always, we welcome your feedback and we also welcome suitable submissions. Be creative! Use the right (!) side of your brain. Make us laugh! Let’s see if we can make this new direction a positive one for all of us. Send your submission to info(at)ccrm.ca.
