    "The Promise and Pitfalls of Embryonic Stem Cells" is scheduled for

    "Human embryonic stem (ES) cells hold the promise of providing unique treatments for maladies such as diabetes and Parkinson's disease. But research is in the earliest phases, and difficult biological, medical, ethical and legal questions are unanswered. What is the true potential of ES cells? Can ES cells be induced to differentiate in controlled fashion? Are ES cells really stable in culture? Will I be able to obtain ES cells made with with my own genetic material? Are answers even possible given the current political and legal restrictions on ES cell research?"
