Stem cells possess many properties that make them an ideal model system for use in bioscience teaching and research.
In addition to being one of the most widely employed biomedical research models, stem cells are fascinating and exciting cells to work with.
Owing to their capacity to make any cell in the adult body, they can be used to study and teach a wide array of bioscience topics from basic biology to applied biotechnology.
Stem cells are also cultured and analyzed using core techniques required by all practicing bioscientists, enabling trainees to gain broadly applicable lab skills as well as specialized stem cell expertise.
Because stem cells are so widely used in science and medicine, practical stem cell experience is an essential skill for all future bioscientists and medical practitioners.
Please Note: We work exclusively with adult, pluripotent and cancer stem cells, which do not pose ethical concerns for any religious or political groups.
