Adams, David S.
Stem cell research is one of the most promising medical technologies in today's world; doctors and scientists potentially have the ability to prolong and save millions of lives. However, ethical and legal issues arise when working with one key type of stem cell, embryonic stem (ES) cells, prohibiting federal funding to derive new ES cell lines. In this IQP, we investigated the various types of stem cells, their applications, and their ethics and legalities. Based on this information, the IQP authors made recommendations and conclusions.
