Stem cell Biology
Stem cells are the building blocks from which all other cells with specific roles are derived in the body. Daughter cells are created when stem cells divide properly in the body or a lab to create more cells. Some kinds of stem cells can be used by researchers to test new medications for quality and safety prior to testing them on humans. This kind of testing will probably first directly affect the development of drugs for cardiac toxicity testing. The usefulness of employing human stem cells that have been programmed into tissue-specific cells to evaluate new medications is one of the newer areas of inquiry. A stem cell line is a collection of in vitro-grown cells that all descended from a single initial stem cell.
