Transcript of Embryonic Stem Cells

Advanced Cell Technology Embryonic Stem Cell Research Embryonic Stem Cells Embryonic Stem Cells What are they ? Embryonic Stem Cells Embryonic Stem Cells Can acquire the features of any cell Example: When given to a patient with an ailment, it will change into a specific cell to heal at the source. Genetic Deterioration Cloning Field of Study Limited to 60 stem cell lines due to the Dickey-Winker Amendment Potential -Spinal Cord Injury
-Heart Disease
-Lung Disease
-Sickle cell Anemia -Held back by ethical issues -Not enough funding for the research to continue "Science will continue to move forward without the impediment of ideologically based challenges." -Lisa Hughes -President of the Coalition for the Advancement of Medical Research.
