Stem cells. What are they, how do they work and what can they do? Should Christians, who value human life, endorse the use of stem cells? Are all stem cells derived from dismembered embryos? Spring Arbor University professor of biochemistry Dr. Michael Buratovich will set the record straight on stem cells. He will defend the full humanity and personhood of the human embryo and explain the difference between embryonic and adult/somatic stem cells and their potential for regenerative medicine. Dr. Buratovich has also just published a book addressing these very questions entitled “The Stem Cell Epistles.” There will be a book signing after the talk.
