All of the tissues in our bodies derive from the fusion of genetic material that occurs when a sperm fertilizes an egg. The first several divisions contain the ‘inner cell mass,’ which are harvested to be grown as embryonic stem cells (ESC) in culture. ESC’s have the ability to differentiate into any tissue of their organism of origin. While much remains to be learned about stem cells, development pathways, and control methods, many key foundation steps are now in place. The next phase of stem cell development will likely revolve around an increased understanding of molecular mechanisms underlying differentiation.
