Stem Cells: Framing the future of healthcare
Stem cells are believed to have the ability to divide without limit and to give rise to specialized cells. Stem cell research is an exciting yet complex and controversial science. It holds the promise of helping us better understand the most fundamental processes of cellular specialization and human development, and many nations have therefore invested heavily in stem cell research and its applications. Stem cell research is one of the most exciting areas of the 21st century science and has the potential to revolutionize the way we treat conditions, including regenerative diseases for which few effective treatments currently exist. There is a lot of hope invested in this field by researchers, governments and the general public.
