Abstract

The purpose of this project is to help inform the public about the technological advances and applications of stem cell therapies, and to describe some of the key legal and ethical issues that surround them. In the first and second chapters, the existing types of stem cells are explored and examples of their treatment of key diseases are discussed. In the final two chapters, the legality and ethics of stem cell applications are discussed, and then each author provides their own individual conclusions at the end of the report.
