Our IQP project focused on the present view of adult and embryonic stem cell research. We researched on three main subjects: the biological, ethical and the political issues. Research such as therapeutic cloning of stem cells (for treating illness) should be allowed and others such as reproductive cloning should be banned. We agreed that adult and embryonic stem cell research needs to be continued, but under government regulations so that these stem cells are not misused.
