Greenlit: Stem Cell Universe With Stephen Hawking, Science

Stem Cell Universe With Stephen Hawking –  The use of embryonic stem cells has ignited fierce debate across the spiritual and political spectrum. But what if we could create man-made stem cells – or find super cells in adults that could forever replace embryonic cells and remove the controversy? Today, we are on the brink of a new era – an age where we may be able to cure our bodies of any illness. Stephen Hawking has spent his life exploring the mysteries of the cosmos, now there is another universe that fascinates him – the one hidden inside our bodies – our own personal galaxies of cells.

Hawking takes us on a fascinating journey exploring what these wondrous and baffling mechanisms are capable of. He is joined by the scientists who are on the front lines of discovery in this field including Dr. Doris Taylor who is customizing a donor’s heart with the recipient’s stem cells – her goal is to revolutionize heart transplants, Dr. Paul Lu and Dr. Mark Tuszynski may have created a breakthrough that could cure paralysis, and Dr. Vincent Giampapa who believes that stem cells can be used to stem the tide of ageing and create a fountain of youth.
