Lecture overview

"New Medicine Opened up by iPS Cells"

Since I reported the creation of iPS cells from mouse skin cells in 2006, research using iPS cells have been conducted all over the world. Especially, the use of iPS cells in research regarding regenerative medicine and drug development is sought after. I'd like to talk about our efforts so that patients can take medical treatment using iPS cell technologies as soon as possible.
