According to the Wikipedia article on Stem Cell Therapy (under the Baldness section), there’s a researcher named Aeron Potter at the University of California (they didn’t say which campus – UCLA, UCSD, UC Berkeley, etc.) who has demonstrated significant new hair growth using stem cells, and his findings are currently under investigation by the journal “Science”.
Only problem is, when I Google “Aeron Potter”, except for the exact same reference (almost the same sentence) on many websites, including HT sites, I get no original references to who the man is, or any clear connection to the University of California.
Here is a typical secondary reference which just restates the Wikipedia claim…
Even when I try “Googlewhacking” the name in different combinations…
“Aeron Potter” + hair
“Aeron Potter” + “stem cell”
“Aeron Potter” + “University of California”
Potter + “University of California” + “stem cell”
Potter + “University of California” + hair
With all of the above combinations, I still get no primary, credible references.
Even when I replace “Aeron” with “Aaron” or “Aron” (as “Aeron” could be a mistake… after all, it’s the name of a chair), I still get nothing credible.
You would think if Aeron Potter is a faculty member at UC, he would have a reference, a biography, or a page of some sort online.
