Adult stem cells are found a bit everywhere in the adult body: bone marrow, fat, muscle, liver.... They need to be spread everywhere so that they can easily and rapidly enter a tissue or organ than has been damaged and help regenerate it.

Adult stem cells are found in the brain, eyes, blood, heart, liver, bone marrow, skin and muscle. However these stem cells are more restricted in what they can develop into, i.e. they can only develop into related cell types only.
