The Promise of Adult Stem Cells
Today’s program is more concentrated on just a few important
First John kicks off an extended boralogue of our current economic
and security condition, along with projections of what the new
administration and congress can and can’t do about it.
Embryonic stem cell research has been a subject of heated
controversy because it requires killing human embryos to do the
research. However, stem cells taken from adults have greater
promise for healing diseases than embryonic cells with far fewer
problems. Dr. Robert Schwartz is Director for Bioscience and
Technology at Texas A&M Health Science Center and a leading
scientist on this growing development in stem cell research.
