    creating individual cardiac muscle cells is quite common, but the creators should have focused on growing miniature tissues for drug development. It needed a lot of engineering ingenuity to scale it up to the size made by the team on the first time it has been done. Human pluripotent stem cells The cells for the heart patch, grown from human pluripotent stem cells, can become any type of cell in the body. By using different lines of human stem cells, the Duke University team has successfully

    Stem Cells Research the Regeneration of Medicine Stem cells research is one of the most powerful areas of medicine that is both researched and passionately argued. The web page of National Institute of Health (NIH) describes that stem cells are unspecialized cells that are capable of renewing themselves through cell division and they can also be induced to become tissue or organ-specific cells with special functions. Stem cells have the potential to develop into many different cell types in the body

  • Hematopoietic Stem Cells

    Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) resides within the bone marrow, which serves as niche for the maintenance of HSCs. HSC niche maintain a balance between proliferation and differentiation not only during steady state of tissue homeostasis but also in stress conditions-like during bleeding, viral or bacterial infection or loss of blood cells caused due to toxins or chemotherapeutic agents. Identification of HSC niche has been a major challenge since years due to high mobility of HSCs. Unlike the other stem cell

    Stem cell research is a controversial topic and this paper will talk about both sides of the controversy. The controversy started back in 1998 when the first successful culturing of human embryonic stem cells was performed. The research surrounding stem cells has been the center of a huge debate mainly because of ethics and morals. A stem cell is an immature cell (not a full human yet) that has the potential to become specialized into different types of cells throughout the body. There are

    The Great Stem Cell Debate In 1998, President Bill Clinton issued a National Bioethics Advisory Commission to begin to study the question of stem cell research (Stem Cells Fast Facts). Since then many advances have been made and stem cells have been used to aid in the alleviation of several medical conditions such as macular degeneration, bone marrow deficiencies, and growing new sheets of new skin for burn victims (Hug). Even though there is much stigma surrounding stem cell research, the medical

    and dilemmas is stem cell research. The conflicts are specific types of stem cells are unethical and not morally right to research on, but not all stem cells are this way. Stem cell research is the study of different types of stem cells and their possible clinical uses. Stem cells can be developed to act as treatments for different types of illnesses and diseases, but currently no push for funding the advancement of research on stem cells are being taken. Even though some stem cells create conflicts

They serve as a repair system for the body” (National Institutes of Health). Even the 44th president Barak Obama spend billions of dollars on stem cells and their advancement. “Stem cells can create other types of cells, like blood, brain, tissue or muscle cells.” (National Institutes of Health). Many people are against stem cell injection
