how far to you think that stem cell research will help human beings in curing a disease have you any idea about stem cells, this stem cell research i think is the most important work going on in various labs, Imagine a single cell able to get transformed in all types of body cells by just giving it a different type of stimuli like chemical or physical. thus helping in various types of treatments.

stem cell research as i learned about it is one of the most promising new field of medicine nowadays. it uses stem cells to be planted to a human body where repair and regeneration is required. a damaged liver for example can be replaced by a stemcell that has been exposed to a liver environment. once the stemcell develops into a new liver, its is then used as replacement to the damaged one. cool huh?
