Recently, I was reviewing induced pluripotent stem cell (iPS cell) announcements from the past 10 years. Many of them are mind-blowing within the framework of current medical practices.
In 2006, Shinya Yamanaka and Kazutoshi Takahashi reported the Nobel Prize winning discovery of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) in Cell, forever changing the landscape of stem cell research. In the 10 years that have since passed, iPSC technology has advanced the fields of drug discovery, toxicology, disease modelling, and cellular medicine.
To celebrate and honor these achievements, this article highlights the “Top 10 Most Important iPS Cell Announcements of All-Time.”
Let me know if you want to suggest any changes or additions to the list. Enjoy! [Read more…]
