Learning objectives – to learn what stem cells are

and how they can be used


Stem cells are cells that can turn into cells. The scientific term for this is

undifferentiated. Differentiated cells have already become specialized and

will now carry out a certain job within the body.
In animals the ability to stay undifferentiated is lost at an early stage therefore

it is very difficult to gain stem cells as they specialize very early in the process.

 

The majority of stem cells are found in embryos, they are of much use in the

medical context as they can be used to cure many diseases and organ defects

as the stem cells have the possibility to form any other cell.
Adults also have stem cells, they are only found in the bone marrow, and

however they are not as useful as the stem cells found in the embryos as they

do not have the ability to form any cell on certain ones
