ASC Research

We've seen the most common use for embryonic stem cells is in pure research. Now, at Science Daily, a case of similar research using adult stem cells:
"The Mount Sinai team took patient skin cells and reprogrammed them to become pluripotent stem cells. Such cells can then develop into almost any type of cell in the human body. The researchers then created heart cells that had characteristics of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy."
