Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews some selected scientific advances as milestones in the development of the field of stem cell biology, and comments on the ethical, religious, and regulatory debate that has surrounded the often startling discoveries in cell and developmental biology. The chapter reflects the status of the field at the start of 2008 in the knowledge that there will certainly be further, significant discoveries over the next year and beyond that will reshape the debate further.
