  • Alternate facts and Australian stem cell research
    02 February 2017
    In The Australian of 30 January, Angela Shanahan did her part to welcome in the Trump era with a tirade replete with a bizarre collection of “alternate facts” regarding stem cell research. The piece was ostensibly a reply to media criticism of the public relations campaign in support of the award of Australian of the Year to stem cell researcher Alan Mackay-Sim. However, Shanahan’s article swiftly morphed into an incompetent rehash of tired old arguments concerning the use of human embryos in stem cell research. The suppositions and conclusions in the article are at best ill-informed and out of date, and at worst complete misrepresentations of reality. They invite refutation.
