Stem cells are cells in the body that have the ability to differentiate into a variety of different cell types, including muscle tissue, bone marrow and organ-specific cells.
The stem cell therapy market is expected to experience meteoric growth over the next few years. A report from Grand View Research projects that the stem cell market will reach US$18.4 billion by 2028.

What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
