Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs) are cells derived from non-pluripotent cells, such as adult somatic cells, that have been genetically manipulated so as to return to an undifferentiated, pluripotent state. Research on iPSCs, initiated by Shinya Yamanaka in 2006 and extended by James Thompson in 2007, has so far revealed the same properties as

In November 1998, two independent reports were published concerning the first isolation of pluripotent human stem cells, one of which was “Derivation of Pluripotent Stem Cells from Cultured Human Primordial Germ Cells.” This paper, authored by John D. Gearhart and his research team—
