Stem cells, like the pluripotent ones derived from embryonic cells in the diagram above, have the potential to differentiate into almost any adult cell in the body. New research has created a faster and more efficient method of creating muscle cells in the hope to treat several conditions. Credit image@ Mike Jones, wikimedia commons
