Reluctant star of stem cell research
America’s most celebrated bioscientist around the turn of this century was James Thomson. He was the face of the new stem cell era, which he launched with a landmark experiment at the University of Wisconsin in 1998 – extracting from very early human embryos cells that had the potential to become any specialised tissue in the body.
Unlike some star scientists, Thomson did not enjoy his celebrity. All the media work – covering not only the science but also the ethics of embryonic stem cell research at a time when it was embroiled in controversy – was an unwelcome distraction from his lab experiments. So he has since withdrawn as far as possible from press attention. Read more >
Madison West High School students are conducting valuable advance testing this fall of the Software Assurance Marketplace (SWAMP) project, helping prepare the cyber-security effort for a successful national launch. The students, many of whom have already developed their own software code, represent an ideal partner in the SWAMP’s quest to make software vulnerability testing a routine behavior among software designers. WMTV 15 News profiled this unique partnership. Learn more >
