Science 101: Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells are Not Human Embryos
Washington, DC | 9/4/13

The scientific advances come at a dizzying pace—stem cells, cloning, lab-grown organs, 3-parent embryos.  Many of these experiments pose significant ethical challenges. 

Scientists Use Ethical Stem Cells Grow Human Liver Tissue
Tokyo, Japan | 7/7/13

Japanese scientists have succeeded in growing chunks of functional human liver tissue in mice.

Possible HIV “Cure” is a Victory for Adult Stem Cell Research
Washington, DC | 7/5/13

The news of two men supposedly being cured from HIV (only the 3rd and 4th people ever to be cured) is cause for celebration for those promoting ethical adult stem cells, and provides motivation to increase adult stem cell research. As reported at the International AIDS Society meeting in Kuala Lumpur, the two men, now known as the “Boston patients”, received bone marrow adult stem cell transplants as part of their treatment for lymphoma.

Kidney Transplant With No Anti-Rejection Drugs? Thank Adult Stem Cells
Washington, DC | 6/4/13

Rob Waddell has had a kidney transplant, but he takes no anti-rejection drugs to prevent his body from rejecting the transplanted kidney.

Scientists Clone and Kill Human Embryos for Dubious Research
Washington, DC | 5/15/13

Scientists in Oregon announced today that they had created cloned human embryos, and then destroyed the embryos to extract embryonic stem cells.

Scientists Can Identify Your Name, Identity Using Your DNA
Washington, DC | 1/21/13

e usually think of DNA carrying the secrets of our biological life, including health and potential disease. But now scientists have used DNA sequences to determine identities.

Adult Stem Cell Research Pioneers Deserve More Attention
Washington, DC | 11/21/12

It was very heartening to see Dr. Shinya Yamanaka recognized with the 2012 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine [1], for his work in development of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells), an ethical route to create pluripotent stem cells [2]. Even more heartening was Dr. Yamanaka’s rationale for creation of iPS cells, and his ultimate aim, the patients:
