Stem cell shorts

StemCellShorts is a series of succinct, animated videos that introduce basic concepts in stem cell research. Each of the 1-minute videos answers a simple question about stem cells and is narrated by eminent scientists. The team, Ben Paylor at the University of British Columbia and Michael Long at the University of Toronto, is now expanding the series to cover adult and cancer stem cells, as well as ethical issues surrounding stem cell research. They hope that it will help foster informed public dialogue about the implications and future of the work.
