Science Savvy November 9th, 2012

This week’s Science Savvy takes the form of an imaginary heart-to-heart conversation between two scientists — one who claimed to isolate stem cells from a ciliary marginal zone (CMZ)-like region of the mammalian retina called the pigmented ciliary margin (PCM), and one who refuted the claim. Hope you enjoy this creative take on how science is self-correcting!
