Discussion of Animal Stem Cells in the Classroom: Engaging Students through the Lens of Veterinary Medicine
Farenga, Stephen J.; Niess, Daniel; Hutchinson, Michael
American Biology Teacher, v77 n6 p405-412 Aug 2015
Learning about stem cells within the context of treating pet illness or injury is an additional way for teachers to discuss the integration of science, technology, and veterinary medicine. We explain how practitioners in veterinary medicine harvest animal stem cells from adipose (fat) tissue in treating pet illness or injury. Further, we narrate how the veterinarian's approach to pet stem cell therapy demonstrates an important step in technological progress in science, one that may lead to medical advances for humans.
