In a process that could revolutionize regenerative medicine, scientists have developed a way to rejuvenate human skin cells.
The new technique winds the biological clock back ten times further than previous methods.
While still in its infancy, it has exciting implications for restoring youth and vitality, and overcoming the diseases of aging. Here’s the story…
Fifteen years ago, Shinya Yamanaka developed a way to reprogram adult skin cells so they could be turned into primitive embryonic cells called induced pluripotent stem cells (IPSCs).
