Transcript of Embryonic Stem Cell Resarch

Benefits of Stem Cell research
Could Solve the organ donor shortage
In Closing ...
Promising avenues must be explored. Stem cell research has so much potential and we are only beginning to tap into its vast potential. Mysteries of the human body must be understood and, at this present moment, embryonic stem cells are needed to develop new life saving treatments.
What is an Embryo?
There is this giant
misconception
that embryonic stem cells come from aborted fetuses.
embryo- The fertilized egg of a vertebrate animal following cleavage. In humans, the developing organism from fertilization to the end of the eighth week
The embryos in stem cell research are five days old, not weeks old, and are stabilized in a test tube.. Not a living person, and if left alone, would never become a fetus.

Embryonic Stem Cell Research
Induced Pluripotent
Stem Cells (iPS)
These stem cells have been wiped clean, they have forgotten what they were
iPS stem cells seem to be the solution to the ethical delimits surrounding this controversial topic... but there is a flaw.
iPS cells retain a transcriptional memory of their origin, which is now shown to endure with passages and to correlate with defects in their re-establishment
iPS is very promising and must be explored.
Embryonic Stem Cells
these are stem cells derived from embryos that are the product of in vitro fertilization.
These cells are pluripotent, meaning they can differentiate into all adult tissue types including heart, lung, nerve, and liver cells
considered a blank canvas by scientists
What is a Stem Cell?
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells in the body that can divide indefinitely
There are three kids of Stem Cells
Adult Stem Cells
Adult stem cells are present in many tissues in the body, such as, bone marrow, skin, and other internal organs.
limited in what it can become
stem cells job in the liver is to repair the liver when other liver cells become sick or damaged and die
Already curing diseases and injuries in other countries.
brain stem energies
burn victims
cancer patients
stroke victims
Why Should the Government Fund Stem Cell Research
The majority of Americans—from across the political spectrum, and of all backgrounds
and beliefs—have come to a consensus that we should pursue this research
Even Peter Griffin Supports Stem Cell Research !
