The purpose of this project is to evaluate the impact of stem cells, as an innovative technology, on society. This project provides a discussion of the various types of stem cells used in research, applications of these stem cells to the field of medicine, the ethics surrounding the use of stem cells, and the legislation that has been imposed in the US and internationally as a result of stem cell research. With consideration of the information above, despite ethical drawbacks, this project advocates stem cell research, embryonic and adult, for the betterment of society as a whole.
