IPS-cell-clincial-trials-map

IPS cell research is a growing area of promise for regenerative medicine. These stem cells, also known as iPSCs or more formally as Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells, are engineered cells that are programmed to function the same way as embryonic stem cells. They can be differentiated into possibly any type of cell that is needed for …

Perspectives on human micro-liver-like structures made from iPS cells

The big stem cell buzz the last day or two has been the news exploding across mainstream media outlets about laboratory-produced human livers grown from stem cells. It’s good news to be sure as it would seem we might be one important step closer to a new reality for millions of people suffering from liver disease. …
