For years we’ve known that stem cells have the potential to develop into many different cell types, and for researchers that’s been a source of hope in treating many diseases.  And, while ethical battles have stymied embryonic stem cell research, scientists at UVM have been working for years with adult and umbilical cord stem cells.
