The Promise of Stem Cell Therapies and the Ethical Issues

What is the promise of stem cell therapies, and what are the new issues they raise in terms of stem cell tourism and sanctity of life?

The film-maker and scientist behind an award winning series of films on stem cells will show excerpts from Conversations and Stem Cell Revolutions. Dr Amy Hardie is head of research in the Scottish Documentary Institute. Dr Clare Blackburn is a Group Leader at the University of Edinburgh's MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine and EuroStemCell's Project Co-ordinator.

This talk is part of a series on "Science, Faith and Ethics", organised by the University Chaplaincy at King's Buildings, University of Edinburgh.
