The stem cell renaissance has been a big success story for stem cell scientists, but there’s a lot of hype surrounding the technology that’s being touted as the next big thing in medicine.

The stem cells revolution has been heralded as the most important thing to happen to medicine in decades, but that’s just not true.
It’s actually the wrong path for stem cells to take, according to a recent article in Science Advances.
The article, titled “Stem cell research is like a virus, and it’s not a good idea to be infected,” looks at the recent research that has been done on stem cells.
Here are some of the problems with stem cell research:
