INTRODUCTION: Induced pluripotent stem cells (Also known as iPS cells or iPSCs) are a type of pluripotent stem cell that can be generated directly from adult cells.
This trend has not diminished since human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC) became available as research and use of hESC and hiPSC rapidly co-develop.
Albert Lam, MD, Benjamin Freedman, PhD, Ryuji Morizane, MD, PhD (Brigham and Women's Hospital), and their colleagues have been working for the past five years to develop strategies to coax human pluripotent stem cells -- particularly human embryonic stem (ES) cells and human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell -- into kidney cells for the purposes of kidney regeneration.
Researchers have discovered a new, high efficient way to produce neural stem cells from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) that can go on to form neurons in the brain.
