Stem Cell Education Homework
Most cells found within the human body are specialised – this means they perform a specific function. Blood cells, liver cells, skin cells, nerve cells are some of the hundreds of specialised cells that form our body.
Some cells, however, are not specialised yet, they do not have a set function – these are stem cells. These powerful cells have the ability to renew themselves through cell division, when the cell divides some cells will continue as stem cells whereas other will develop to become specialised cells.
Cells4life are one of many companies who look to embrace the benefits of stem cells and their role in the future of medicine. We provide a service that allows parents to store the stem cells found in their baby’s umbilical cord following birth.
We have produced a series of materials, designed to support students studying biology at GCSE and A-Level with research, homework and revision.
