Understanding the Stem Cell Controversy: Miracle Medicine or Mad Science (Public health series)

The authors provide a frank and reader-friendly view of this field that draws the hope, as well as the opposition, of millions. From the history of stem cell identification and the science of stem cell transplants, to the cells’ potential for curing cancers and other diseases, they give us a comprehensive understanding of stem cell science and politics. Named Inventor of the Year in 1999 for his stem cell identification technique, Civin takes us through basic science for stem cell uses. He identifies the key individuals involved in this field, from academics to private interests, and tells how Congressional actions have affected their work. Focused primarily on stem cell research and advances in the United States, this work also examines views and developments in other countries, including Great Britain, China, and Korea.
