Stem cell guru to discuss book

Larry Goldstein, M.D., will discuss and sign his book, “Stem Cells for Dummies” at 7 p.m. March 2 at The Book Works in the Flower Hill Promenade, 2670 Via de la Valle, Del Mar.

Goldstein is a professor of cellular and molecular medicine at UCSD School of Medicine, and the director of UCSD’s Stem Cell Program, as well as investigator at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

He calls his book “a practical, plain-English guide to a politically charged topic, one that cuts away the hype and clearly presents the facts on stem cells, free from debate.”

It explains what stem cells are and what they do, the legalities of harvesting them and using them in research, the latest research findings from the United States and abroad, and the prospects for medical stem cell therapies in the short and long term.

There will be time for questions at the free event. Wine and cheese will be served. More details at (858) 755-3735 or
