Abstract

the purpose of this project is to create an understanding of the controversial topic of stem cells and their impact on the scientific community and society. this is accomplished by discussing the different types of stem cells and their actual or theorized uses, as well as elaborating on the ethical and legal implications that surround the scientific work. stem cells have seemingly unlimited potential for treating some of the worst human diseases, but strong ethical opinions and legal limits will continue to affect this technology in the near future.
