Stem Cells: Biology and Promise for Regenerative Medicine by Elaine Fuchs, Jan. 2007 - Part 1: Introduction to Stem Cells and Ethical Issues (35:11)

submitted by: video_collector
During embryogenesis, a single fertilized oocyte gives rise to a multicellular organism whose cells and tissues have adopted differentiated characteristics or fates to perform the specified functions of each organ of the body. As embryos develop, cells that have acquired their particular fate proliferate, enabling tissues and organs to grow. Even after an animal is fully grown, however, many tissues and organs maintain a process known as homeostasis, where as cells die, either by natural...

Female Fertility

submitted by: alex01

E.Seli, MD pioneered the use of RAMAN spectroscopy in embryo assessment after in vitro fertilization. The procedure uses various biomarkers to improve pregnancy outcome.
Experimental production of oocytes from stem cells and possible role of leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) in female fertility are also discussed.
