The Cutting Edge of Medical Technology Content, Community & Collaboration
Dr Jane Maienschein of Arizona State University is a former Congressional Fellow and Senior Science Advisor. She debunks the common idea that stem cell science began in 1998 and maintains that stem cell science is actually nearly a century old. History may provide lessons for researchers and the public concerned about the social, political, and religious status of the embryo. Professor Maienschein's talk was part of UC Santa Barbara's popular New Visions of Nature, Science, and Religion initiative.
