The gap between stem cell research and regenerative medicine just became a lot narrower, thanks to a new technique that coaxes stem cells, with potential to become any tissue type, to take the first step to specialization. It is the first time this critical step has been demonstrated in a laboratory.
âItâs the first time weâve had the correct three-germ-layer organization in mammalian cells,â Wang said. âThe potential is huge. Now we can push it even further and generate specific
