Art and science intersect at America's largest stem cell research center

At Stanford's Lorry I. Lokey Stem Cell Research Building, the striking two-ton glass sculpture hanging in the atrium was designed to symbolize the creative process that the building is designed to foster. Tre Stelle di Lapislazzuli (Italian for "Three Stars of Lapis Lazuli") was created by Seattle-based artist Dale Chihuly and donated by My Blue Dots.

In this video, Irving Weissman, MD, explains the genesis of the sculpture, how images from stem cell research influenced the piece and why art is an integral part of America's newest and largest stem cell research center.
