Stem Cells: Their Sources, Therapeutic Uses and Societal Issues
Biotechnology is of increasing significance to understanding our complex world, including agriculture and medicine. Stem cells are particularly important, as their sources and uses are often misunderstood. This workshop will train secondary and tertiary school teachers in North Carolina to incorporate biotechnology theory and techniques, particularly those related to stem cells, into their high school and college classrooms. Such information will help train our state's students for the universities, workplaces, and societies of the future.
