Stem cells
Posted by: Barbara Bibel

Stem cells and stem cell research are in the news, so we often get questions about them. Finding information that is easy for lay readers to understand can be difficult. Here are some good resources that will help your patrons. The National Institutes of Health resource for stem cell research has a page called Stem Cell Basics at http://stemcells.nih.gov/info/basics/basics7.asp. It explains what stem cells are, the different types, the research that is ongoing, and the potential uses for stem cells. There is a long list of FAQs that covers all aspects of stem cell research and potential applications for specific conditions. The International Society for Stem Cell Research at http://www.isscr.org/public/ also has a very informative public page with videos, a glossary, and information for patients.
