In other words, a stem cell can become a heart cell, a neuron, a red blood cell or any other type of cells found in multicellular organisms. They are two types of stem cells: embryonic and adult. Both types are used in research and treatments.... more

When used in medical interventions, they need to be gathered from somewhere and they are often taken from bone marrow when used to repair heart tissue. Where they come from is not important in the sense that they always have this ability to differentiate and become specialised cell... more
