Eurostemcell editathon at the University of Edinburgh MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine[edit]

Hi, looking to run a Eurostemcell editathon at the University of Edinburgh's MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine on 20th July. Can the edit protection be lifted for this page for our editors for the purpose of this event? The event page is here. Or is it a case of submitting the proposed change after our editors have drafted new text during the event? Many thanks, Stinglehammer (talk) 22:12, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

This is usually done through WP:RPP#Current requests for reduction in protection level, although normally you'd probably want to ask Materialscientist (talk · contribs) about this first since he protected the page. Seppi333 (Insert ) 22:16, 11 July 2016 (UTC)
Padlock-dash2.svg Not done: requests for decreases to the page protection level should be directed to the protecting admin or to Wikipedia:Requests for page protection if the protecting admin is not active or has declined the request. — JJMC89(T·C) 04:45, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Added library resources template[edit]

Hi, since this is a popular topic for student essays, I added a library resources template. If it is disliked, it can be deleted. I won't be offended. Pangurban22 (talk) 19:55, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

Request edit on 19 November 2016[edit]


To make the first section clearer id suggest:

Broadly, there are two types of stem cell. Tissue stem cells are found in various places of the body and enable growth, repair and renewal of tissues and organs. Embryonic stem cells are generated in the lab from cells of the early embryo (4-6 days old depending on the organism)

As it stands, it implys that embryonic stem cells are found in mammals, which they aren't; they are grown in the lab from cells of a mammal embryo. Using the definition of self renewal, stem cells aren't found in the early embryo - they dont self renew, just differentiate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Endoderm (talkcontribs) 13:55, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
