Stem Cell Research Proves Useful for Pharmaceutical Industry

Researchers are investigating the ability of stem cells to be used for a variety of purposes apart from transplants; in particular, one scientist is currently analyzing the usefulness of cord blood stem cells for the pharmaceutical industry in conducting drug testing. Colin McGuckin of Newcastle University presented recent findings at the Taiwan International Somatic Stem Cell Symposium in Taipei that stressed the non-invasive, ethically acceptable process of cord blood collection.
