When assessing the market potential for induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), it is important to consider where the research began, when it accelerated, and where it is at the current point in time.
Timeline of Key iPSC Production Events
The following is a timeline of the key events in the production of iPSCs, beginning with their discovery in 2006. For research product companies interested in dominating the iPSC products marketplace, it is critical to understand the different production methods for iPSCs, the chronological order of the introduction of methodologies, and the inventors who first performed each.
The reason for this is several-fold: [Read more…]
