Why Stem Cells?
Adult Stem Cells
Where Are They Found?
PRIMARY SOURCE: DAVID MCKEON; NYSCF
Not much more
Almost Anything (Cancer, HIV, Other Diseases)
Embryonic Stem Cell Definition
Solution: iPS (iPSc)
Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells
EmbRyonic Stem Cells
Where Are They From?
Reprogrammed Skin Cells
Reprogrammed skin cells
Not embryonic stem cells
InduceD Pluripotent Stem Cells
Stem Cell Transplants
Inner Cell Mass
4-5 Days Post Fertilization
Destruction of embryo
Same as embryonic stem cells
Almost Anything (Cancer, HIV/AIDS, Other Diseases)
Can replace organs
Atomic Model of an HIV Capsid
They Are Ethical
Everything has misuse
Can help save many lives
Make the world a better place
