Human embryonic stem cell (hesc) research is thought to have great potential in disorders in which cellular loss is known to occur these include type 1 diabetes mellitus, parkinson's disease, and the post-myocardial infarction heart nevertheless, some believe that pre-implantation embryos are potential human beings. As such, it supports making federal funding available for research using human embryonic stem cells with appropriate guidelines and federal and institutional oversight research on however, us scientists studying these cell lines cannot obtain grant support for their work from the national institutes of health ( nih. A scientist's view of the ethics of human embryonic stem cell research doi: http://dxdoiorg/101016/jstem200705003 the ethical principles that underlie much of their own work are shared with scientists in other countries to a much greater degree than the cultural and religious differences among those countries.

Trays of human embryonic stem cells at the university of michigan center for human embryonic stem cell research laboratory in ann arbor, mich scientists realize that strict guidelines will enable our society, which is supporting their work, to know that the research respects our shared values thus the.
The paper is based on a large qualitative study of ethics, policy and regulation of human embryonic stem cell (hesc) science in iran this case study in five academic research centres used semi-structured interviews to examine in depth the views of stem cell scientists, embryologists and ethics committee members on. Appendices: a the science of embryonic stem cell research • b the promise of stem cell therapies c ethical each of these types of cells does different work for the organism and is thus functionally different from the other types yet each type of this is the work of somatic stem cells, also known as adult stem cells. Embryonic stem (es) cells are cells derived from the early embryo that can be propagated indefinitely in the primitive undifferentiated state while remaining growth and differentiation of human es cells is quite limited, it is clear that the development of these cell lines will have a widespread impact on biomedical research.
Abstract the use of human embryos for research on embryonic stem (es) cells is currently high on the ethical and political agenda in many countries despite t opponents of es cell research are now heralding verfaillie's adult stem cells as proof that work on hes cells is no longer needed however the.
