Via “Musing”, score one more for stem cell researchadult stem cell research.

Adult mouse skin contains stem cells that can generate skin and hair. Although the result has been hinted at before, the latest work is the first to prove that the cells are true stem cells, with the capacity to form new tissues. It’s hoped the discovery will lead to treatments for baldness and burns.

Again, please note the first word in that paragraph; “adult”.

For perspective, the score for embryonic stem cells is still 0.
