Adams, David S.
Adult stem cells, especially hematopoietic stem cells have been used to treat humans for over 20 years, but the use of embryonic stem (ES) cells has been restricted since their use involves the destruction of a human embryo. Hence, ES cell research is surrounded by ethical, moral, and religious anxieties. This IQP analyzes the controversies surrounding stem cell research, the legislations passed to regulate their use, their applications and their future in regenerative medicine.
