This lecture will briefly cover our current understanding of stem cell biology and address the hurdles that need to be overcome for their clinical use. Along the way, I will highlight examples of the myths and realities of stem cell applications, touch on the regulatory issues required to ensure their ethical application and hopefully convey some of the excitement in the field of stem cell science
