  • Slide 1 - Embryonic Stem Cells = Immortality? Medical benefits are almost unlimited Cell replacement therapies Design better medications and produce organs, limbs Human achievement
  • Slide 2 - Thesis We should increase funding for and remove restrictions on embryonic stem cell research.
  • Slide 3 - Experience Learned about stem cells and cell development through courses including Genetics Cell Biology Neurobiology and Developmental Biology Pursuing career in medicine/medical research.
  • Slide 4 - Do you have diabetes or a family history of cancer or heart disease? Do you have family or friends who are sick? Do you engage in behavior that has long term negative consequences? This encompasses almost everybody
  • Slide 5 - How would it work? Using stem cells one could replace dysfunctional or dead cells. e.g. Heart attack e.g. Diabetes Drug development Regrow organs, limbs
  • Slide 6 - It could cure 25 million Americans w/ heart disease 21 million Americans w/ diabetes 10.8 million Americans w/ cancer Countless other people suffering from more than 70 other diseases and injuries. Seems so obvious…
  • Slide 7 - Current funding is insufficient ONLY $40 million California’s attempt If we had underfunded NASA
  • Slide 8 - Restrictions on ES research In 2001 President Bush restricted ES research to 80 lines. Only 20 of the lines are useful. All lines may be contaminated. This current research may fail
  • Slide 9 - Consequences of Bush’s restrictions Dr. Irv Weissman says that these restrictions have severely affected research. Director of NIH Elias A. Zerhouni agreed that research is being hindered According to Martin Rees, US laws have global implications
  • Slide 10 - Embryonic stem cells show promise for cures SHORT TERM Skin grafts Blood producing factories And drug testing LONG TERM Cures for numerous diseases New organs And new limbs
  • Slide 11 - What will it take? National priority In 1961 Kennedy issued a challenge We have the money… 275 million a day in Iraq Where do you think the money should go? The more we invest, the faster the benefits could be realized
  • Slide 12 - Conclusion People are dying every day If you had a terminal illness Lobby your government representatives. I challenge you to make a difference Help make the promise of embryonic stem cell research a reality.
  • Slide 13 - Questions?
