October 21, 2005 – Collin County Community College District (Collin) professors will inaugurate the new public lecture series by tackling the controversial issue of stem cell research.

Subramanian will lecture on the biological background and current status of stem cell research. Adams will discuss the history of public and governmental debate surrounding stem cell research.
