MAPPING STEM CELL RESEARCH: TERRA INCOGNITA

Mapping Stem Cell Research: Terra Incognita puts a human face on the stem
cell debate by following the work of Dr. Jack Kessler, a renowned expert in
the field, as he searches for a cure to spinal cord injuries, and the
breakthrough that will allow his injured daughter to walk again.


When Dr. Kessler was invited to head up the Neurology Department at
Northwestern University, his focus was on using stem cells to help cure
diabetes. However, soon after his appointment, his daughter Allison, then
age 15, was injured in a skiing accident that left her paralyzed from the
waist down. In the moments following the accident, Dr. Kessler made the
decision to change the focus of his research to begin working on a cure for
spinal cord injuries using embryonic stem cells.


Through his work, the film tells the stories of families whose lives have
been affected by spinal cord injuries, and the people working to alleviate
their burdens. It shows the awe-inspiring, yet painstaking work undertaken
by Dr. Kessler and his lab - the documentary tracks several dramatic
experiments in which paralyzed mice regain some movement in their legs -
while following his tireless efforts to raise awareness of the potential
benefits of stem cell biology.


Representing a diverse array of voices, including scientists, doctors,
patients, bioethicists, students, and religious leaders, this insightful
documentary offers a revealing look behind the politics, the controversy,
and the promise of embryonic stem cells.
