14 Nov, 2018iPSC Models to Improve Efficiency of Drug Discovery and Development

Stem cells have attracted a great deal of deserved attention due to their lineage-independent characteristics. In other words, they have the potential to be differentiated into a countless number of cell types. Adult stem cells, otherwise known as inducible pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), are particularly favorable as research tools because they are derived from a patient’s somatic cells such as blood, skin or muscle.
