My blog article on issues pertaining to germline editing & the dual use dilemma...

 

Extract: 

"..............

An observation that underlies the issue is perhaps the historical fear factor effect of the "dual-use dilemma." That is to say the mere fact that there exists a possibility of misuse of scientific discoveries has in the past created significant barriers to progress and inhibited otherwise important developments in the timely advancement of research efforts to eradicate human disease & suffering.

Effective and mass-producing protocol for the stepwise differentiation of PSC-derived osteoblasts using four small molecules (CHIR, cyclopamine, SAG and TH) under serum-free and feeder-free conditions. The protocol involves mesoderm induction, osteoblast induction, and osteoblast maturation phases. This strategy can be implemented for bone-augmentation drug screening and skeletal regeneration.
