The purpose of this project is to build an in-depth compilation of information related to the topic of stem cells, and to make conclusions regarding the impact of this technology on society. This project is divided into four distinct chapters: 1. Stem Cell Types and Sources, 2. Stem Cell Applications, 3. Stem Cell Ethics, 4. Stem Cell Legalities. The first two chapters investigate the types of stem cells while explaining their applications,existing and potential. The latter two chapters explain the effects of the technology on society, and how society shapes the laws that can freeze or expand stem cell usage. Based on the research, a conclusion was reached that stem cells are and will be beneficial to society, and the recent legislations in the US are helping expand the technology.
