Stem Cells Are Everywhere! (Out of Stock)

$8.99

Written by a pioneer in stem cell research, this is an engaging introduction to the topic for young children and adults alike. How do you heal when you cut your skin or break a bone? How does your body keep making new blood or brain cells, or even second teeth? How does a plant keep growing larger? The answers lie in stem cells, which are found in every growing plant and animal. Keeping the subject simple enough for young readers, a pioneer of stem cell research explains cells, tissues, normal growth, what can go wrong, and how to fix it.
