This class takes you on a journey inside the stem cell revolution, where scientists, policy-makers, and philosophers will challenge you to think about the social, political, and even spiritual implications of this uncharted scientific frontier and formulate your own position on stem cell research. As a result of this course, you will have a basic understanding of the science behind stem cell research, its applications and potential, and its social implications. We hope you will have enough knowledge on this subject to be able to, after your completion of this course, understand and participate in stem cell activities on campus and be informed about the political stances surrounding this developing field. The format of this course includes weekly, hour-long presentations on a variety of stem-cell-related topics by guest lecturers and facilitators. Also, hour-long class discussions will be held weekly to review the lectures, creatively instruct you about the basics of stem cell research, and converse about current developments in this field. Pertinent weekly readings will be assigned.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
