Abstract

The purpose of this project was to investigate the topic of stem cells and to determine the impact of this controversial technology on society. The technology itself was investigated by documenting the various types of stem cells, describing their various medical potencies and listing which diseases have already been treated by stem cells. The effect on society was investigated through a discussion of their complex ethical and legal issues.
