ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the development in the stem cell research and clinical development. He states that for more than 10 years the public image of all stem cell research has been equated with embryonic stem cells. He mentions that in parallel to efforts in embryonic stem cell research and development, scientists and physicians in the field of adult stem cells realized that the natural role of adult stem cells in the body is to promote healing and to act like endogenous 'repair cells.'
