MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads (June 2018)

June brings us to the fourth edition of our blog series, the MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads. This month’s selection of articles will focus on induced pluripotent stem cells or iPSCs. This technology, developed by researchers at Kyoto University lead by Dr. Shinya Yamanaka, allows adult cells to be genetically ‘reprogrammed’ to a stem cell-like state. Thus, it is possible to derive specific cell types from iPSCs, such as neurons and cardiomyocytes, providing a means to study human cells in-vitro. Increasingly, iPSCs are being used…
