In anticipation of stem cells continuing to be a significant issue in the 2008 presidential election, this IQP's purpose was to explain the basic biology of ESCs, how they relate to the political and ethical issues surrounding their use, and the misconceptions derived from the common media that make it necessary to explain them more clearly. The result is a pamphlet for voters to quickly become educated and decide which candidate best fits their stance on the issue of ESCs.
