Abstract

Stem cells are undifferentiated cells with the ability to renew and divide indefinitely to generate specialized cells, thus they show medical potential for treating and curing currently untreatable diseases. This project investigated the different types of stem cells, how they have been used, and the effects of this new technology on society via ethical and legal issues.
