  • Thanks to recent technological advances, scientists can take cells from an adult individual, for example skin cells from the arm, and use specific growth conditions to return the cells to an early embryonic state. The resulting induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) can develop into any type of cell, such as muscle cells, red blood cells or brain cells. As iPSCs can be differentiated into cells that are normally hard to access, they offer a stepping stone for researchers studying disease. Creating an iPSC is highly complicated, so only a small number of laboratories do it. An even smaller number of them annotate their cells in a way that makes them useful for other scientists to use, so the demand for high-quality iPSCs from healthy people is very high. Continued...
