5-11-10: Faith in Science

May 10, 2010 at 3:24 pm Leave a comment

The stem-cell researchers at University of Maryland and several international institutes are about to launch new research into whether stem cells from intestines can lead to treatments for disease. It’s called The International Intestinal Stem Cell Consortium and attention has focused on the source of funding: The Vatican, known for its uncompromising opposition to use of embryonic stem cells. We get an overview of the initiative from Dr. Curt Civin, director of the Center for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

Then we look at the ethical questions with Debra Mathews, Assistant Director for Science Programs at the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics and Bishop Denis Madden, Auxiliary Bishop of Baltimore.
