Dear Dr. Lawrence… We’re sending you our thanks!

Your fascinating talk today eased us gently into a very complex subject. I’m sure that everyone feels more confident now about starting to look at articles on stem cell research. As a layman myself I came from your presentation thinking, “If only… just…” Luckily, a few of your slides showed us that research does not proceed along a straight line from bright idea to results. Nevertheless, I’m still hoping that perhaps you kindled that bright idea in some of our students. Thank you!

    Dr. Lawrence,

    You’re presentation was great and extremely eye opening. There are still so many questions I have about stem cells and about the research being done all over the world. This definitely answered many of the questions I had and more importantly sparked my interest in the subject and generated many new questions. Best of luck to you in working with stem cells and I can’t wait for all the research to finally come to fruition.

    Much thanks to Dr. Lawrence for taking the time to visit our class and introduce us to stem cell research! The information you presented was fascinating and the fact that humans have the capability and technologies to manipulate adult cells is incredible. You answered my questions about cost and convenience factor during the lecture. My only other question is if the researchers have any conception of time at which some sort of product will be appropriate for clinical trials or whether so much is still to be learned that there is no way of putting a time on it. Thanks again for your time!

    Dr. Lawrence,
    Thank you so much for taking the time to come lecture about stem cell research. I thought the topic was fascinating and you presented such complex information in a very digestible way. I’d suggest pursuing a career in professorship if you ever felt that you were comfortable moving on from research.

    You answered one of my questions in class (i.e. “Why do you think the synthesized beta cells stopped producing insulin?” and the other that I didn’t ask would have been: Is there truly any risk for stem cells being abused or is the field kept in check by federal organizations?
