What are embryonic stem cells? Why are they potent? How do they differ from adult stem cells? Are embryonic development and regeneration intimately connected? In four presentations, Dr. Douglas A. Melton and Dr. Nadia Rosenthal discuss how stem cells may hold the key for curing diseases and unlocking the secrets of regeneration.

This DVD set includes detailed chapter search by scientific topic; direct access to animations; English subtitles; interviews with the speakers; special features on stem cell therapies and regeneration in diverse animals; a discussion on stem cell policies and ethics, and a story on stem cells from NOVA scienceNOW.

Presented at HHMI's 2006 Holiday Lectures on Science. Two discs, lecture time approx. 240 min.
