Learn Why This Line Of Research Is So Important
Go inside James Thomson’s lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where embryonic stem cells were first cultured. By the time they leave, your students will understand what stem cells are, how they are cultured, and why they offer such potential for the future. After viewing interviews with pioneers in stem cell technology and leaders in stem cell ethics, students will also be able to start to address the ethical dilemmas that accompany this type of research.
