Professor Graziella Pellegrini is one of the principal scientists on the ground breaking, corneal repair system Holoclar ®. Working throughout Italy over the past 27 years she is now based at the Centre for Regenerative Medicine “Stefano Ferrari” at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia.
The scale of the medical challenges that an ageing population poses for healthcare in the future will require radical solutions; harnessing the potential of stem cells represents a promising strategy. On 12 November members of the public gathered at King’s College London to discuss issues surrounding stem cell research and how their clinical translation may be realised.
To date OptiStem’s successful graphic story ‘Hope Beyond Hype - a story about stem cells from bench to bedside’ has had over 117,000 online readers! We are delighted to now release Hope Beyond Hype in six new versions: French, Italian, Spanish, German, Polish and interactive.
It was an interesting process working on the translations, especially as the word “hype” has quite different meanings in different languages. Each of the translations has been checked by a native speaking scientist to ensure the text is both scientifically and grammatically correct.
