Induced Pluripotent Stem (IPS) Cells: Did you know?
IPS cells need to be “fed” every day like their human donors! To stay happy and healthy, they receive a mixture of nutrients and growth factors that is refreshed every day of the year.
IPS cells were first generated in 2006 by a research team at Kyoto University in Japan.
Motor neurons were first generated from an 82 year old female with ALS in 2008.
