StemCellShorts - What are embryonic stem cells?

Part 2 in a series of short (around 1 minute) animated videos answering basic questions about stem cell research. This video is about embryonic stem cells and is narrated by Janet Rossant.

Since their first discovery, embryonic stem (ES) cells have been the focus of intense research and public scrutiny. Derived from discarded 5-day old embryos (typically obtained from patients undergoing in vitro fertilization), this type of stem cell possesses the ability to create any tissue in the human body and replicate indefinitely in culture conditions. Because of these properties, ES cells represent a unique research opportunity to understand human development and create new therapies for disease.

StemCellShorts - What is a stem cell?

The first in a series of short (around 1 minute) animated films that answer basic questions about stem cell research.

A seminal paper published in 1961 by Drs. James Till and Ernest McCulloch was the first academic study to prove the existence of an exciting new type of cell, the stem cell. Since this foundational study, the promise of stem cells and their application to human disease has grown tremendously, their potential only beginning to be realized. This animated video, narrated by Dr. Till, provides a brief explanation of this early study as well as explaining the two basic concepts that define the answer to the question "What is a stem cell?"

Includes Q&A and discussion questions.

Animation: Disease modelling with cells

How are stem cells used to model disease in the laboratory? This 3-minute animation gives a clear, simple and visually appealing explanation of what disease modelling is, why it is useful and how it is done.

This animation was created for EuroStemCell by animator Duncan Brown, with scientific content by researcher Dr Christian Unger and voiceover by Dr Nathan Adams. It is supported by an accompanying factsheet on reprogrammed cells in disease modelling.
