Stem Cell Quizzes & Trivia

It could be the missing key. The link we need to cure diseases like cancer and Parkinson’s, and regenerate organs. What is it? Here are some hints: You cannot see it without a microscope. We carry it in our body. It is the focus of hot political talk. Got a clue? It is the stem cell.
 
A stem cell is a cell that has yet to differentiate itself into a specific type of cell, such as a brain cell or skin cell. They can be harvested from the body, in places such as bone marrow and they exist in the umbilical cords of newborns. How can medical science use these cells to cure some of the most debilitating and deadly diseases of our time? What does the future hold for stem cell research? Why is this research so controversial? Use your differentiated brain cells to answer such questions and more with these questions on the stem cell.
