    • Stem Cells Under the Microscope: A Picture Gallery Stem cells are how we all begin: undifferentiated cells that go on to develop into any of the more than 200 types of cell the adult human body holds. (Courtesy: New York Times) We have read about stem cell research in various disease fields. Here is a gallery of stem cells sourced from various published papers.

    • Spontaneous embryonic stem cell differentiation in mousecells. The bright green cells show that some embryonicstem cells differentiate into cardiac myocytes.
    • Important Embryonic Stem Cell Research Milestones Stem cells were discovered in human cord blood• 1981- First in vitro stem cell line developed from mice• 1988- Embryonic stem cell lines were created from hamsters• 1995- First embryonic stem cell line derived from a primate• 1997- Cloned lamb from stem cell and leukemia origin found as haematopoietic stem cell, which could indicate potential proof of cancer stem cells
