This is a documentary focused on understanding the basic biology of “adult” stem cells. The movie explores the different types of adult stem cells that exist and how the specialized stem cell niche controls the proliferation and differentiation of the resident stem cell. In addition, this movie introduces the connection between misregulated adult stem cells and human diseases such as cancer.
