Stem Cell Research

Last week my group presented on the present and future implications of stem cell research. One things we talked about was induced pluripotent stem cells. Recently researchers in Japan developed a technique that allows adult blood cells to return to their embryonic state. This process only takes about thirty minutes, a significant decrease in time compared to past methods, and the results are even better than expected. This research brings humankind one step closer to the main goal of limb regeneration, even anti-aging. Linked I have a brief video that talks about the process of and hope from this research.
