This exciting new book takes readers inside the world of stem cells guided by the author, Dr. Paul Knoepfler, who is an international expert in stem cells. Stem cells are catalyzing a revolution in medicine and may transform how we age. The author's goal is to give readers an insider's guide into the world of stem cells. The book answers the most common questions that people have about stem cells and stem cell treatments. What are stem cells? Why are some types controversial? Can stem cells help my family with a serious medical problem such as Alzheimer's or Autism? Are such treatments safe? Can stem cells make me stay young? These questions and many more equally important ones are answered in this book in a manner that the reader can enjoy and understand. Stem Cells: An Insider's Guide also takes readers inside a stem cell lab with an exciting virtual tour. In addition, it provides a description of a day in the life of a prototypic stem cell to give readers an inside look at how they function and the key factors that influence them. In these ways, the author brings readers fully up to speed on the cutting-edge rapidly moving field of stem cells. The book is unique as it is written in an approachable, often humorous way that a general, educated audience can understand and appreciate. A number of issues related to stem cells that spark controversies are also discussed. The book also tackles the exciting, but fast moving areas of stem cell treatments including sports medicine, anti-aging and cosmetics that are capturing the public's imagination. Are these treatments ready for prime time? The book cuts through the hype and answers that essential question. It is also your guide to where the stem cell field will be in the near future and how it could change your life and our world.
