What are stem cells, and what promise do they hold for the treatment of medical conditions? In this one-day course, we will explore the basic biology of stem cells, understand new research techniques, and address the ethical concerns that surround them. Learn what has already been accomplished to treat diseases, and where the research is headed for the future from three stem cell experts at the frontiers of the field.
