The dream to launch a medical revolution takes commitment and cash. The potential of stem cells has captured the attention of thepublic and the politicians. However, as with all new basic scientific and technical knowledge, careful and rigorous examination of the SCIENCE of stem cell biology is required before unwise applications of stem cell therapy is used. The fundamental question “what is stemness” must be answered through meticulous scientific research. Understanding the complexity of signaling pathways is critical to advancing the use of stem cells for drug discovery and development as well as other therapeutic applications. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Commercial Implications of Stem Cell Research addresses the current reality of stem cell research and its promise.
