Stem cell research lab to open in Denver has just one employee -- for now

Stem cell research comes with a generous handful of misconceptions. The first, of course, is that the science deals entirely with embryonic cells. The second, it would seem, is that it's difficult. Within the next three weeks, IntelliCell, a publicly traded stem cell research company, will open a lab facility in Englewood. But that's where what you'd expect ends and what will surprise you about science begins.
