Stem cells are able to regenerate specific tissues and provide immense potential medicinal benefits. Adult stem cells have already been used to save innumerable lives while embryonic stem cells obtained from embryos have encountered many ethical constraints and have not entered clinical trials yet. The purpose of this IQP was to investigate this controversial topic, describe the types, functions, and clinical applications of stem cells, as well as focusing on their impact on society through ethical and legal issues.
