What are Stem Cells?

Stem cells are our body’s raw materials from which all other tissues and organs are generated. They are our body's master cells.

Stem cells have the potential to repair, restore, replace, and regenerate cells, and have the potential to be used to treat many medical conditions and diseases. Stem cells are immature cells that have the ability to develop into many different cell types, from muscle cells to brain cells. They are the only type of cell in the body that has the natural ability to generate new cell types.
