#stemcellfacts – Tweeting stem cell research

Posted by , on 16 February 2012

Twitter logoAt the start of February, EuroStemCell used our Twitter page @eurostemcell in a new way: We posted a series of fascinating facts and ‘test your knowledge’ questions about stem cells, using the hashtag #stemcellfacts. The tweets covered a lot of ground, from embryonic stem cells and blastocysts to skin stem cells, gut stem cells, heart cells and regeneration.

Thanks to Kate Blair for developing the #stemcellfacts concept and researching the content for the 30 tweets. You can see all the tweets collated with responses from other tweeters in our Storify summary.
