來自THE SCIENCE OF STEM CELLS的熱門評論
A good course for those genuinely interested in stem cells. You will definitely get to learn something more from this course. The objective based questions often cover the topics in video lectures.
Good overview of Stem Cell current stage of development.
The week 5 content about ethics of stem cell research has good quality content and also asks the right questions, current and future.
Everything was very well discussed. I am glad I took this course because it made my knowledge about stem cells widen in both ethical and scientific aspects. Thank you so much for this opportunity.
Extremely informative course, I'm impressed by the examples and the research potential that stem cells provide. I'm also quite interested in finding out how these treatments will fare in the future.
