    Liver Cells Created from Patients' Skin Cells
    ScienceDaily (Aug. 28, 2010)

    "By creating diseased liver cells from a small sample of human skin, scientists have now shown that stem cells can be used to model a diverse range of inherited disorders. The University of Cambridge researchers' findings, which will hopefully lead to new treatments for those suffering from liver diseases, were published August 25 in The Journal of Clinical Investigation."

    cool find SMU! I find stem cell research to be extremely interesting and beneficial to our society whether it be adult or fetal. It only shows promise in the scientific community.
