iPS cell stockpiling project

The Kyoto University Center for iPS Cell Research and Application in Japan started iPS cells (induced pluripotent stem cells) for stockpiling in regenerative medicine and clinical research in 2013. This project is being led by the center’s director, Shinya Yamanaka, an iPS cell developer and Nobel Prize winner, to build a stock of specific iPS cells with a lower risk of immune rejection.
