Example: Bone marrow.

The bone marrow contains Hematopoietic stem cells. These stem cells are then able to develop into all the other types of blood cells( red blood cells, white blood cells etc). Hematopoietic stem cells also self renew.

The main purpose of stem cells in an adult is to replenish dying cells, or regenerate damaged tissue
