Global Meet on Stem Cell Research and Molecular Biology


Stem cells
Stem cells are characterized by the ability to self-renew, or divide without senescing, and to differentiate into specialized somatic cells. Stem cells have the ability to differentiate into specific cell types. The two defining characteristics of a stem

Adult stem cells
Adult stem cells, like all stem cells, share at least two characteristics. First, they can make identical copies of themselves for long periods of time; this ability to proliferate is referred to as long-term self-renewal. Second, they can give rise to ma

Embryonic stem cells
Embryonic stem cells are obtained from the inner cell mass of the blastocyst. They can give rise to every cell type in the fully formed body, but not the placenta and umbilical cord. These are incredibly valuable because they provide a renewable resource
