Stem Cells

With the potential to develop into many different cell types in the body during early life and growth, stem cells serve as a sort of internal repair system, dividing essentially without limit to replenish other cells. They can be induced to become specific cells with special functions (like muscle, nerve or organ cells) or can divide to produce more stem cells. With their unique regenerative properties, they offer the potential for treating diseased or damaged cells.
