Stem-Cell Technology: The Only Constant Is Change

December 3, 2019

(GEN) – Far removed from stem cell services that offer only anecdotal evidence of efficacy, or no evidence at all, there are bona fide advances in stem cell research. These advances may not beguile a credulous public, but they are the most reliable indicators of progress. In this article, due attention is given to some of the most significant stem cell advances: the application of CRISPR genome editing to iPSCs; the development of stem cell therapeutics for diabetes; and the creation of synthetic stem cell–derived embryos.
