    It kind of sounded like that but at the same time it sounded like they were moving more into stroke patients, also was pretty clear they were going wherever the money is....

    to be fair I think anything that promotes regrowth in the CNS stroke or not can help all other related injuries

    Don't get me wrong, I am 100% behind the work Geron did in spinal cord injury, they were a leader in hesc work and getting it into humans was huge!!! I'm also pretty close with Hans Keirstead who did that research work for Geron. I just hope they stay the course with their SCI work. I believe hesc's hold a lot of promise for SCI repair but I also think is going to be a long slow road to find a proven therapy with them, test it and get it approved beyond the clinical trial phase.

    Curious what you know/think about Hans' way to reprogram the scar?
