Alan Mackay-Sim ‘Fudged’, But There Was No Compromised of Ethics

January 30, 2017

(The Australian) – Mackay-Sim has done very valuable work on the use of nasal stem cells in spinal cord injury. He was the pioneer in this country in the use of adult stem cells and proved that they were safe to use. By concentrating on the use of adult stem cells rather than ­embryonic stem cells, his research bypassed the most contentious ethical debates, and, what is more, he did this with very limited funds.
