Stem cells are the future of modern medicine, with many first world countries taking advantage of it and being able to have a healthy population.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
