Reprogramming Human Cells a Breakthrough in Disease Treatment

New research led by a team of scientists from Monash University and the University of Bristol has resulted in the development of a blueprint that will eventually allow clinicians to routinely turn cells in the human body into tissues needed to treat disease. Applications include turning skin cells into cells of the arteries and veins to treat people with diabetes or heart disease. The study, published in Nature Genetics, overcomes what has been one of the main barriers to regenerative medicine therapies–the pace in which we learn how to make different cell types.
