Stem cells are primitive cells found in all multi-cellular organisms that are characterized by self-renewal and the capacity to differentiate into any mature cell type. Categorized by stage of life, several broad categories of stem cells exist, including:

  • Embryonic stem cells, derived from blastocysts
  • Post-natal stem cells, derived from newborn tissues
  • Adult stem cells, found in adult tissues - including hematopoietic stem cells, mesenchymal stem cells, neural stem cells, and more
  • Induced pluripotent stem cells, reprogrammed from adult cells
  • Cancer stem cells, which give rise to clonal populations of cells that form tumors or disperse in the body


Embryonic stem cells are stem cells derived from the inner cell mass of a blastocyst, which is a stage reached four to five days post-fertilization. They are the most pluripotent of all stem cell types and can develop into over 200 different cell types of the human body. Human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) were first derived from mouse embryos in 1981 by Martin Evans and Matthew Kaufman, and independently by Gail R. Martin
