“Embryonic stem cells are grown in the laboratory from cells found in the early embryo” ("Types Of Stem Cells And Their Current Uses")....[tags: Stem cell, Embryonic stem cell] - Stem cell research is a topic almost everybody in the world has a viewpoint on.[tags: Stem cell, Embryonic stem cell] - Mary Bodunde Professor Couch Biology 1408 6 August 2015 The Discovery of Stem Cell Introduction Stem cells are cells that stand as support system for other cells.
Before humans are created we start as cells, known as embryos.
Because this isn’t considered life yet, we are just clumps of cells....
Where the controversy is, though, is on embryonic stem cells.
Since the 19th century, scientists have been studying stem cells, from plants to animals, for a cure to various diseases within them.
By definition, “stem cells are characterized by their ability to self-renew and to differentiate into multiple different cell types and tissues” (Koch, Berg, and Betts, 155).
Stem cells are undeveloped cells that are able to, once injected into the afflicted organ, tissue, or bone, self-renew into the cells that belong to that bodily region....By being able to discover and explore different things, we will be able to learn more.Not only does Stem cells help people directly, but they help others indirectly.There are different sources of stem cells but all types of stem cells have the same capacity to develop into multiple types of cells....[tags: Stem cell, Embryonic stem cell] - The term stem cell research is thrown around a lot, but while researching for this paper, I realized I didn’t actually know much about it.The term “stem cell” was first introduced by German scientist, Ernst Haeckel to define the fertilized egg that will become an organism....[tags: Stem cell, Embryonic stem cell] - Another way Stem Cell research helps us is by knowledge.Mostly, ethical issues such as the use of embryonic stem cells and cloning.There are many different stem cells used in stem cell research: embryonic stem (ES) cells, induced pluripotent stem (IPS) cells, and adult or somatic stem cells.One of the main characteristics of stem cells is their ability to self-renew or multiply while maintaining the potential to develop into other types of cells.Stem cells can become cells of the blood, heart, bones, skin, muscles, brain etc.
