World Stem Cell Summit Comes To San Antonio

Dec 1, 2014

The future of medicine will be in San Antonio this week. It's a future where spinal cord injuries are healed and the paralyzed can walk again - a future where body parts and organs are regrown for transplant - a future where diabetes and Parkinson's is a thing of the past and a future where people can live with extended youth.

The World Stem Cell Summit comes to the city with a who's who of the world of breakthrough medicine.

But stem cell treatment does remain controversial to some due to it's use of human early stage embryos however, the promise of the end of suffering for many is impossible to ignore.
