 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...
