9780816049493: Stem Cell Research: Medical Applications and Ethical Controversy (New Biology)

Throughout its development in the past few years, controversy and debate have surrounded stem cell research. Since skin cells have the capability to divide, our skin can heal itself through the division of cells. Scientists have attempted to apply this theory to major organs, trying to see if stem cells can be used to make the repairs that post-mitotic cells cannot. Stem Cell Research is a comprehensive and interesting introduction to this popular new science for students and non-experts. Explaining how stems cells can be obtained from several places including skin, bone marrow, and most usefully, embryos, this book covers all the fundamental aspects of stem cell research in an easy-to-follow manner. It presents the questions surrounding the use of embryonic cells in a clear and balanced format while bringing readers up to date on the latest technological advances, applications, and issues regarding stem cell research. Biographies of key scientists conducting this type of research, a bibliography, glossary, and index complete this worthwhile resource.

About the Author:

Joseph P. Panno, Ph.D., specializes in molecular biology and physiology. He has taught a variety of undergraduate biology courses and published in numerous peer-reviewed publications including Cytometry, Molecular Brain Research.

From Booklist:

Gr. 9-12. The science and technology are detailed, dense, accurate, and up-to-date in this title in the New Biology series, and the readable discussion of the ethical issues shows that there are no simple answers. Physiologist Panno explains how stem cells can be used to treat, and possibly cure, a wide variety of diseases, and he predicts that the use of adult stem cells will soon be routine. An important chapter looks at legal practices in the U.S., Europe, and the U.K. The book includes occasional diagrams; an extensive, detailed glossary; and many bibliographical references to science and ethical discussions in print and on the Web. In addition, there is a chapter summarizing cell biology and recombinant DNA technology. A carefully done, in-depth series that will work well for researchers and debaters, adults as well as teens. Other titles in this new series: The Cell, Aging, Animal Cloning, Cancer, and Gene Therapy. Hazel Rochman
