Connections: Get Up-to-Speed on Stem Cell Research

Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

We're getting up-to-speed on stem cell research. The debate was raging a decade ago: embryonic vs. adult stem cells. Many local scientists pushed for more opportunity to gain access to embryonic stem cells, given the potential to attack disease. How is research progressing? What's next? Mark Noble, professor of genetics, neurology, and anatomy at URMC will deliver a presentation later this month at the Rochester Academy of Medicine titled, "My Child Does Not Have Time for Your Ethics!". He joins us in studio along with Richard Dees, ethicist at the University of Rochester.
