STEM CELLS AND SOCIETY Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The purpose of this IQP is to compile information regarding the topic of stem cells, and then draw conclusions about this new technology and its effects on society. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells with the ability to renew and divide indefinitely to generate specialized cells. The seemingly unlimited potential of stem cell research has several medical applications and has founded the new field of regenerative medicine. However, their use draws strong ethical concerns for embryonic type stem cells, which leads to the creation of legislation to dictate the boundaries of this new technology.
