Abstract

The purpose of this project is to bring attention to the impact of stem cells and their applications on society. Despite what many people believe, there are multiple types of stem cells. These stem cells can be utilized for many different applications including regenerative medicine. A topic as controversial as stem cells draws strong ethical concerns, which prompt the creation of legislations to dictate the boundaries of this new technology.
