Oct. 5, 2012 — Scientists have been growing stem cells in the lab for nearly 15 years, transforming stem cells into heart cells, liver cells and brain cells.

In an interview with NPR, Sean Morrison, Ph.D., explains the stem cell’s journey, and what it could mean for fertility and assisted reproduction.
