  • The road to a cure for HIV/AIDS

    Something wonderful sometimes happens when scientists and the public get together to talk about research. All the jargon, all the technical language falls away, and it becomes instead a conversation between the two groups with most at stake: the people in need of a treatment or cure, and the people trying to develop it. Last week, the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) joined with the AIDS Project Los Angeles to hold a Town Hall event in West Hollywood called HIV Matters: Countdown to a Cure: California Leads the Way. Around 120 people showed up to listen to stem cell scientists from USC, City of Hope, Calimmune and Sangamo Biosciences — all of whom are using CIRM funding to develop new treatments and hopefully even cures for HIV/AIDS.

  • USC undergraduates get a dose of stem cells in two new MEDS courses

    Science fiction author Margaret Atwood has frequently stated that biotechnology itself is neutral. It is how people use it that is good or bad. In the new spring course MEDS 380 Stem Cells: Fact and Fiction, this concept became a touchpoint for discussions of everything from clones to chimeras to cyborgs.
