KromaTiD’s Dark Lab Files: The Great Race to Cure Cancer – iPSC Segment

iPSC’s (induced Pluripotent Stem Cells) are an important cell for cancer studies. Human embryonic stem cells have two important properties; self-renewal (pluripotent) and an ability to differentiate into many other specialized cells. By reprogramming the adult specialized cells you can turn those cells into iSPC's. [...]
