Summary
"Why are stem cells desirable for regenerative medicine? What biological questions do we need to answer about such issues as transplant rejection? In terms accessible to the interested lay reader, Stem Cells and the Future of Regenerative Medicine summarizes what we know about adult and embryonic stem cells. It also provides an overview of the moral and ethical problems that arise from the use of embryonic stem cells, compares the likely impact of public and private research funding on progress in the field, and discusses approaches to appropriate research oversight." "Based on the insights of leading scientists, ethicists, and other authorities, the authors make recommendations regarding the use of existing stem cell lines versus new lines in research, the important role of the federal government in this field of research, and other fundamental issues impacting potential stem cell-based therapies." "This volume will be important to anyone who wants to understand the full range of issues surrounding stem cell research: policy makers, regulators, scientists, researchers, educators and students, journalists, advocates, and the concerned public."--BOOK JACKET
