Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center-Houston
in collaboration with Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital

Most of us want to believe human ingenuity will someday bring about a future free from suffering, sickness, and senility.

Many think stem cell research holds the key to this future. What is stem cell research? What are stem cells? What is the difference between adult and embryonic stem cells? Where and how do we get stem cells? What do we know so far about the pros and cons of stem cell therapy? What are the moral implications? Should we care?
