Mother cell research mapping: Terra Incognita puts a human face on this controversial subject. When the daughter of Dr. Jack

Kessler neurologist injured his spine in a skiing accident, who directed their energies toward finding a method to repair damaged spinal cords, re-focusing his research on the development of cell therapy embryonic stem cells to regenerate damaged parts of the nervous system of the system. His research has led to a very politically sensitive area in which views of Catholic and fundamentalist Christian about the beginning of life exert a powerful influence.

Kessler uses his position to educate the public about the benefits of stem cell research through public lectures and newspaper articles. In working with two graduate students, Vicki and Vibhu, guides them through a careful experiment in mice with spinal damage. Also, during a weekly meeting with students laboratory, Kessler discusses religious objections and misunderstandings about stem cell research.

His colleague, Dr. Laurie Zoloth, who participates in public education activities Kessler, also delves into the moral and ethical issues surrounding research in their classes on bioethics. The questions are more difficult, involving different religious beliefs and sense of human suffering.

In response to the views of most Americans, Congress passed the Stem Cell Research and Enhancement Act of 2005, which was vetoed by President Bush. Another bill supporting stem cell research made its way though Congress in 2007 and also received a presidential veto. Discussion and debate will continue in individual states pass laws that affect stem cell research, while other countries make progress in this field.

  1. stem cells can be found in the bone marrow and fat cells of normal living people as well as in ubilical chords of newborn babies (the part that is usually thrown away) so why not harvest those cells from people? Why the focus on Embriotic stem cells? The others are not be as “prime”, but there is evidence that they work just as good and without the controversy. There is an agenda here and we see where it leads. My own mother had a stroke and now is bed ridden, but embriotic stem is wrong.

  2. Type in the following to see her video “Grace Draper after her fat stem cell treatment for stroke.”

  3. Quit blaming religion. I am a Christian and being educated has helped me make a decision to support stem cell research. Keep religion out of it. There are more things in this world that get impeded by ideals that are not from religion then things that are. I doubt you would never post with a rejection statement about something you cant blame religion for? Bashing religious people just add fuel to the fire and it prevents any sort of mutual agreement that could come togather.

  4. I am myself as a stem biologist. I have put myself to this one day our works would make a scientific miracle come true. No matter how hard my path is, I will walk through the end. That is how our life has been instructed to do.

  5. So when well treatment start for the people who needs this? What’s the update? I hope it’s soon.

  6. I would be against stem cell research if it were purely for the sake of science and knowledge. But if done so to help human beings and in the long run animals as well, I am more than willing to negotiate. Personally, as a Muslim, I have no problem with the use of step cells in research rather it is the mice sacrifice that bothered me. As such, I strongly feel that the reason behind the research is fundamental and deserves attention. In this case, I would support stem cell research.

    This video is another reason religion is damaging to humans. We need to ditch our desert myths and begin healing humans.

    All of a sudden the whole “BEEEP” piece just chipped off?”fucking” is not allowed appropriate?

  9. RELIGION has set back science numerous times…will religion save you from dying? It may give you comfort..but in the end your still dead. if you say its GOD’s will, dont go to the hospital when you accidentaly cut off a finger cooking cause its GOD’s will

    Embryonic stem cell research has only held empty promises for years now. Germany, where Embryonic stem cell research is banned, has cured a man of HIV using adult stem cell therapy. We have been waiting for so long to hear of anything like that from Embryonic stem (ES) cells, but all we get is “just a couple years, it’s coming”, then the years drag on, and they give us next to nothing, world-wide.We just are supposed to have ‘faith’ that ES cells will come up with some cure.

    This should have 7 billion views and the majority of the money of the world should go into stem research and cell therapy. A few stories have been released recently saying the first person to live 150 years has alrady been born and 50 years after that people may live to 1,000 and beyond by use of cell therapy. If only this shit had been advanced on a better scale pisses me off but at least it is getting done.

  14. emmosea says:

    only 20,000 people saw this ?? only 89 were motivated to vote ??? if 2,000,000 had seen this it would only be a start. Inspirational. That’s the only word here.

  15. associate39 says:

    Thas it? Thats your great response? I nominate you for abortion

  16. You are either a extremely ignorant man or a troll. so Stfu.

    please how download this video?

    We’ve never ever spotted specific film then proceeded to go to see this one located on thisisawesomemovie, coom and simply my family and i figured? it was awesome. you actually definitely will want to find out who the 3 key characters are and so almost everything else should be easy to understand.

  19. i would have like it at the end if it said, and she was cured. but we live in reality and that kind of thing needs time. i hope she’s walkin again as soon as possible. and if not i wish her and her dad and mom and whole family all the happiness in the world b/c they are doing something great especially the dad but it’s all of them.
