Over thirty years ago the idea of stem-cell research was introduced to the scientific world, now thirty years later the research and the technology for stem cells has advanced tremendously. Stem cells have the amazing potential ability to develop into many different stem cells in the body, and due to its regenerative abilities stem cell research offers promises of disease treatment for diseases such as diabetes, spinal cord injury, Parkinson’s disease, and heart disease.
