Mark Mercola: Differentiating Embryonic Stem Cells into Adult Tissues

submitted by: CIRMTV
A major challenge in developing stem cell-based cures for disease is maturing those cells into adult cell types that can be used for transplantation or to study human disease. Mark Mercola has a CIRM grant to derive heart muscle cells from embryonic stem cells. In this video, Dr. Mercola describes how stem cells could one day be used for transplantation, for testing new drugs for side effects on heart muscle cells, and to learn about how the heart cells mature and develop. That knowledge...
