Stem cell research is one of the most promising, yet controversal, medical topics in today's world. The purpose of this IQP is to investigate the potential applications of many different types of stem cells in various diseases, and to explore beyond the technology itself to discuss their legalities and ethics. Based on our research, our group concludes that, despite heated debates from both religious and political standpoints, stem cell therapies show strong benefits to society. We agree that embryonic stem cell research should be expanded, and agree with Obama's recent legislation to allow federal funding to support this new technology.
