Insoo Hyun and Dean George Q. Daley will discuss the scientific and ethical challenges surrounding
stem cell-based clinical trials and attempts at medical innovation using patients' own stem cells.

How are the ethical and technical challenges facing the clinical translation of stem cell science
exacerbated by the growing global phenomenon of "stem cell tourism"?

Interactive discussion will follow the presentation.
