This project investigates several different aspects of the complex, and in a way existential, topic of stem cells, documenting various types of stem cells, their potencies, their uses, their controversial ethical dilemmas, their legal aspects, and their overall effects on society. We support the efforts to re-establish U.S. federal funding for embryinic stem (ES) cell research. We also support the use of alternatives to ES cells, such as iES cells. Adult stem cells do not require the destruction of an embryo, but are harder to identify and grow than ES cells, and have less potency.
