Indeed, an Albert Lasker Medical Research Award was presented to two scientists earlier this year for discoveries involving nuclear reprogramming, the process that instructs specialized adult cells to form early stem cells, thus creating the potential to become any type of mature cell for experimental or therapeutic purposes. We want to know whether you think stem cell research will make it into the applied research arena within the next three years?
