It gives me great pleasure to announce that the new Stem Cells Portal became active on Sunday 7th February 2010. This important development will allow us to create an online community of scientists actively engaged in stem cell research and other individuals who are interested in the scientific, ethical, commercial and social impact of this important technology. Our objective in launching the portal is to create a virtual meeting space where persons with relevant questions, comments or even just some issue they need to share with others can come together to discuss the latest developments in the field. We want researchers to feel as comfortable talking with their peers through the portal as they would in their morning lab meetings – the only difference is we can´t provide the coffee!
It is early days in the Portal´s development so we would ask users to bear with us while we add content. As time passes you will notice that more information will appear such as features describing key Stem Cell laboratories, reports of conference proceedings and relevant articles from the scientific and general press but a lot of the Portal content will be influenced by you, the users, so please get involved! Register today and make your opinions count in the world of Stem Cells.
