Stem Cell Research: A Doctor’s Personal Mission

The debate over stem cell research became very personal for neurologist Dr. Jack Kessler when his own daughter became paralyzed in an accident. Now he believes that stem cells are the best hope for his daughter’s recovery, and he’s devoted his own career to researching them. Dr. Kessler is the subject of a new PBS Independent Lens documentary called "Mapping Stem Cell Research: Terra Incognita." It premieres on Friday, January 18 at 10:00pm on CHANNEL 13 (Thirteen/WNET New York).
