2010 Lecture 22

From CellBiology

Stem Cells 2

This lecture provides general background on therapeutic potentials of Stem Cells and technologies used for isolation and identification of stem cells.

It also provides an overview on a pre-clinical research project on Enhanced Stem Cell Therapy using Chemotherapeutic Drug Mediated Selection.
