Stem Cell Reprogramming Takes Another Step Forward

Dr. Yamanaka of Kyoto University continues to advance the field of stem cell research and has recently developed a method of reprogramming adult stem cells to embryonic stem cells that does not involve the injection of a virus. The elimination of a cancer-causing oncogene, or virus in this process reduces the risk to of activating or deactivating critical host genes and improves the safety of the transformation process.
