ITVS Community Cinema invites you to a double feature of MAPPING STEM CELL RESEARCH: TERRA INCOGNITA and STEM CELL GOLD RUSH to investigate the potential for medical breakthroughs and how the Bay Area is leading the way. A panel discussion will follow to uncover the key debates surrounding bioethics and new medicine.

MAPPING STEM CELL RESEARCH: TERRA INCOGNITA by Maria Finitzo

Some consider stem cell research the Holy Grail of regenerative medicine. Others view the idea as morally wrong. But what would you do if your child became paralyzed from the waist down and you had access to the research that might allow them to walk again one day? These are questions our society continues to grapple with. Follow a respected neurologist into the unknown territory of stem cell research.


Featuring Stem Cell Gold Rush, a 10 min. Short-Documentary from QUEST, KQED’s Science, Nature and Environment Series

Panel Discussion Featuring Bruce R. Conklin, M.D. Senior Investigator Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease and Don Reed Patient Advocate with Americans For Cures
