Human stem cells, cell and tissue generation perhaps the most important potential application of human stem cells is the generation of cells and tissues that could be used for cell-based therapies today, donated organs and tissues are often used to replace ailing or destroyed tissue, but the need for transplantable tissues and organs far. What is a stem cell this is why they are of such value to scientists doing both basic research in the lab and medical research in the clinic they have the potential to regenerate tissue and cells that have been lost because of disease or injury the future stem cells represent a revolution in health care, but we’re still in the.
