Margolis: Beware the Embryonic Cheerleaders

The Stem Cell Blog run by Stanford's Chris Scott carried an interested commentary the other day from Don Margolis, founder of the adult stem cell company, VesCell, who tackles some of the issues related to reprogramming of adult stem cells.

Among other things, Margolis invokes cancer, criticizes "embryonic cheerleaders" (presumably not unborn pom-pom girls) and attacks "censorship" of those who differ with the heralds of hESC.

Margolis also hails the "refreshing" honesty of such folks as Jamie Thomson, George Daley, Doug Melton and Shinya Yamanaka. You can find the piece here.
