A*STAR Scientists Create Stem Cells From a Drop of Blood

Singapore, Mar 20, 2014 (Korea Bizwire) – Scientists at A*STAR’s Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB) have developed a method to generate human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) from a single drop of finger-pricked blood. The method also enables donors to collect their own blood samples, which they can then send to a laboratory for [...]
