The article discusses the significance of stem cell research and its applications. It defines stem cells as specialized cells that make up different types of tissues in the human body. It mentions the development of stem cell technologies which includes the stem cell therapy. It stresses that development of stem cell research contributes to understanding of fundamental human biology. It further suggests that stem cell research should be conducted under accountable and effective systems of social oversight and control in order to develop opportunities for scientific advances for medicine.
