Stem Cell Research

Stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body. Serving as a sort of repair system for the body, they can theoretically divide without limit to replenish other cells as long as the person is still alive. When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential to either remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, or a brain cell.   There are 3 main sources of stem cells:

  1. Fertilized egg derived stem cells (called embryonic stem cells in the press).
  2. Umbilical cord blood.
  3. Adult bone marrow & other adult tissues.
