USC will introduce a new undergraduate course next spring called “Stem Cells: Fact and Fiction.” From babies born with three biological parents to regrown body parts, the course will explore the current state of stem cell biology as it closes the gap between reality and the sci fi visions of such authors as Margaret Atwood and Philip K.
