Using video and a white board to describe complicated research

Describing complicated medical research in an easy-to-understand way isn't the easiest thing in the world to do. It seems to come naturally to some people, though - like many of my colleagues and, as I recently discovered, UCSF graduate student Florie Charles. Charles, through her website Youreka Science, posts short, lay-friendly videos on scientific discoveries. In the one above, she describes a recent Stanford study, funded in part by California's stem cell agency, on neural progenitor cells. (Think that sounds like complicated stuff? Just hit play.)
