U.Va. to Host Conference on Stem Cell and Organ Donation Ethics This Week

Growing new cells from so-called stem cells to potentially cure disease remains a hot topic all over the world, particularly in light of the recent announcement by South Korean scientists who admitted they faked once-groundbreaking embryonic stem cell research. The University of Virginia’s Center for Biomedical Ethics will widen the debate over this controversial issue by hosting a two-day conference featuring some of the best and brightest minds in stem cell and organ transplantation research. The conference, free and open to the public, will be held Thursday and Friday at the Boar’s Head Inn in Charlottesville. The event is co-sponsored by U.Va.’s Department of Surgery’s Center for Cellular Transplantation. Full story.
