Scientists support "Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell" Research
In November 2007, researchers discovered a way to reprogram ordinary adult human cells into cells with the versatility and other properties of embryonic stem cells, without using eggs or embryos (“induced pluripotent stem cells” or “iPS cells”). Further advances have quickly followed to make this approach safer and more efficient, creating a new paradigm for stem cell research. Leading researchers and science writers have been commenting on the implications. For their comments on this research, please click the link below.
