slide 1:

The Mystery of Human Life

slide 2:

 Where Are Stem Cells Stem cells exist in us and all other living animals

slide 3:

 What Are Stem Cells Stem cells are a unique cell which continues to divide and grow while the human or animal is living

slide 4:

 What Do Stem Cells Do  Stem cells turn into specialized cells such as red blood cells or muscle cells when given the right impetus.

slide 5:

 Stem Cells in Action  Stem cells are regularly turning into blood cells and bone cells in your bone marrow to replace wear tear.

slide 6:

  Renew and divide for extended periods of time  Unspecialized  Capable of turning into other specialized cells Three Unique Properties

slide 7:

 Different Kinds of Stem Cells Embryonic Stem Cells  Embryonic stem cells were first used from mice starting in 1981  1998 human embryo stem cells are first extracted used Somatic Stem Cells  2006 somatic or ‘adult’ stem cells are used discovered  These are capable of being used for research  J Kevin Kaufman says this is one of the most important breakthroughs for conduction research

slide 8:

  J Kevin Kaufman explains embryos which are 3-5 days old are blastocyst and it is from these embryonic stem cells that the entire body of the organism is generated. Being Born

slide 9:

 Future of Stem Cells Doctors are hard at work trying to unlock how to induce stem cells to change into specialized cells

slide 10:

 Stem cells could be the answer to curing countless diseases and growing lost limbs Curing Diseases
