The field of regenerative medicine is concerned with healing the diseased and damaged human body. A new method to make pluripotent stem cells discovered by Dr. Yamanaka in 2006, called cellular reprogramming, has enabled Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSC) to be made from skin cells. A UAB research lead by Michael Edel (PhD) from the Anatomy and Embryology Unity has improved the method of cell reprogramming by substitution of the c-Myc gene (an oncogene) for Cyclin D1. This may pave the way for future clinical applications.
