    Stem cells have several potential applications. Stem cells can be used to study development by helping us to understand how a complex organism develops from a fertilized egg. Some of the serious medical conditions such as cancer and birth defects which are lead by abnormal cell division and differentiation will have new therapy dealing with stem cell research. Stem cells have the ability to replace damaged cells and treat disease of extensive burns, leukemia (a cancer of blood forming tissues) and

    Stem Cell Research What if there was a more efficient way to cure non-communicable diseases other than surgery. Stem cell research could be answer to this. Although, the benefits of this research are high there is controversy when it comes to this topic. Mostly, ethical issues such as the use of embryonic stem cells and cloning. There are many different stem cells used in stem cell research: embryonic stem (ES) cells, induced pluripotent stem (IPS) cells, and adult or somatic stem cells. “Embryonic

    Stem Cell Research What is a Stem Cell? Stems cells are immature cells found in embryos that can develop into any kind of specialized cells. They can form virtually any cell of the human body. These types of stem cells are known as pluripotent cells. Multipotent cells are stem cells that are more mature; they can be found in adults and children. Multipotent cells are not as flexible as pluripotent cells, as they have already developed into more specialized human cells. Benefits of Stem

    Stem Cell Research Stem Cell Research Stem cells are located deep down in our bone marrow. They have the incredible ability of “generating an endless supply of red cells, white cells, and platelets”(1). They have been called the “Mother of all blood cells” due to their ability to regenerate the entire blood supply of a persons body. Just to think that this is possible is actually pretty incredible. The man who claims to be responsible for the discovery of

    Stem cell research has caused a big ethical debate across the nation. The stem cell lines developed for stem cell research are established from embryos after fertilization. An embryo is then divided into individual cells to create a stem cell line. From the embryo, one cell is placed in a dish and nourished with substances that stimulate the cell to divide, then the resulting line will then continue to divide in a managed environment and if taken care of properly (Creating Stem Cells For Research)

    Stem cell research. Simple words that to some mean a lot more than a new potential scientific field. It is simply the creation or repair of another life form from an earlier form. Stem cells have the chance to change all that we know in the medical field as well as the potential to heal old wounds and heal damaged organs. This point causes much debate and anger of those opposed to stem cell research but they ultimately look at the process and not the form or result of it. Stem cell research has

    Stem cell research is one of the greatest debate topics of the 21st century. Stem cells are a powerful tool in the fight to save lives. But with so many ethical issues surrounding stem cell research I am in fear that we may loose a powerful asset. In the debate you are about to see myself and a few of my fellow group members are debating on the Con side of stem cell research. But this not a true depiction of our thoughts on Stem cell research. The debate would be lopsided with 9 people on the pro

    Stem Cell Research Works Cited Not Included Stem cell research is a highly controversial topic that may hold the key to developing a cure for many cancers and diseases. In 1998, a group of scientists developed a technique to isolate and grow stem cells. The field is extremely new when compared with other fields. A few things need to be discussed before an argument can be made for or against stem cell research, the types of stem cells, the potential uses, and where funding should come from.

    Stem cell research and their potential use in medicine sparks probably th most controversial ethical debate in modern times. Amongst issues considering the effectiveness and risks of potential stem cell therapies there are others such as social worry about the availability and cost of stem cell treatments as well as issues with donors and consents. As stem cell therapies are relatively new areas in research and medicine these doubts and concerns are understandable. What creates the bigger problem

    topic in the medical field, research suggests stem cell research is advantageous because it can potentially treat life threatening diseases, repair failing organs, and be used to test new medicines. Human embryonic stem cells were first isolated in 1998 by Dr. James Thomson and his group at the University of Wisconsin. Adult stem cells are cells that are taken from a human being and are already differentiated, meaning that they can’t become another cell other than the cells from the tissue they were
