Adult stem cell research earn Nobel Prize

Following this story because of my obvious self-interest in the advancement of stem cell research, the life-saving procedure that, in 2007, made it possible for me to stay alive to write this.

The recent Nobel Prize recognition of work on artificially derived multipurpose stem cells by Japanese scientist Shinya Yamanaka (left) and Sir John B. Gurdon (right) is likely to further boost use of the technology in the country's biotech and related industries.It is hoped that his research for engineering mature cells, such as skin and blood, to grow into any type of body tissue will help in the development of new drugs and spur business opportunities for regenerative medicine, free from the controversy associated with stem cells from human embryos.  ||  MyJournal
