Abstract

The purpose of this project was to determine whether adult stem cell plasticity might serve as a replacement therapy for using embryonic stem cells. This topic was investigated through an extensive literature review supplemented with interviews of key stakeholders. Our data indicate that plasticity very likely exists in some systems, and identified several potential reasons for discrepancies among various research labs.
