We are a robotics group and we are doing a presentation on biomedical engineering, and our subject is retinal damage. We are doing a skit for our presentation, and it must require a new, creative solution to our subject. We wanted a solution that would be original, and we thought it would be successful to repair the optic nerve and retina with adult stem cells and that it would get us a great score! It would be a good alternative to using embreonic stem cells so no potential humans die in the process. We also though it would be a realistic possibility based off of recent biomedical research.
