My colleague, Dr. David Prentice was recently published in a scholarly journal, Tissue Science & Engineering. This journal recently honored pioneers of the adult stem cell research community. His article, Remembering Pioneers in Patient Treatments, celebrated the achievements of researchers who have made a profound impact on advancing stem cell treatments.
We sometimes lose sight of that ultimate goal, the real reason behind our exciting laboratory investigations, late nights in the lab, grant submissions, published papers, and talks at meetings. That is why it is so important to celebrate these pioneers of basic science and of patient treatments. It is also important to remember practitioners who have labored in the laboratory and in the clinic, with that patientcentered goal in mind.
