The hematopoietic stem cells for example, are stem cells in the bone marrow, and are precursors for all stem cells. They provide the blood cells necessary for fighting infections. Another type of stem cells is mesenchymal stem cells. The mesenchymal stem cells interest me the most because of their multiple usages.
