We just uncovered this awesome 3 minute video of Geron CEO Thomas Okarma explaining the promise of stem cell therapy as well as the damage that has been done by the Bush administration over the last 8 years.  Just a few days ago we posted that Geron has won approval for the first ever FDA clinical trial of stem cell therapy.  Here are some choice quotes from the video:

“Geron has spent as much money on stem cell research as the entire NIH over the last 10 years”

“In the future, when you have heart attack, you instead of coming home with a damaged heart, you will come home with a heart that has been repaired with new heart cells”
