Stem cells - hail as one of the most important discoveries of the twenty first century
have generated much hope as well as hype. What actually are stem cells?
Stem cells are the basic building blocks from which all other kinds of specialized
cells in the living things are derived. There are potentially many sources of stem
cells. Theoretically, stem cells also have the potential to have vast therapeutic
uses in the foreseeable future.
The Window to The Future
Like the picture of two majestic mountains “peeping” at a distant snow-capped mountain
in Milford Sound, New Zealand in our Hi-Fi version, research in stem cells may be
the window to a lot of unknown.
