They need to get a handle on the stem cell cancer connection, but that sounds wonderful, so far.
They'll be engaging in more research and trials, I'm sure.
Will stem cell therapies help with other neurological disorders? That's hard to say for sure, but I think it's very possible.
I'm thinking they might be able to promote the growth of cells that make connections, or grow other cells the brain is lacking in.
I wish that were true now.

Like maybe using biodegradable nano bots.

Why couldn't they be transported via the skin and blood vessels?

Yeah. I'm not all that comfortable with the method either.
There must be better ways to get the cells to where they need to go.

Yes I agree more research is needed and a better method of delivery than drilling holes while a patient is awake. In time it will happen. I wish it could be very soon.
