      It’s awesome 😀 Stem cells can divide infinitely and can turn into other cell types, so they are extremely useful to research and study, especially because there are so many diseases caused by your cells becoming damaged or lost (like Parkinson’s is caused by cells lost in the brain), and with stem cell therapies we can replace those cells and stop the disease 😀

      In cell biology, stem cells are very exciting and will be used frequently in the future 😀

      I think it’s great! They have the potential to become lots of different cell types and could be used to cure all types of diseases in the fututre!
