Recent Advances in iPSC Disease Modeling, Volume One addresses how induced pluripotent stem cells can be used to model various diseases. This new volume teaches readers about current advances in the field, describing the use of induced pluripotent stem cells to model several diseases in vitro, and thus enabling us to study the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in different pathologies. Further insights into these mechanisms will have important implications for our understanding of disease appearance, development and progression. The volume is written for researchers and scientists in stem cell therapy, cell biology, regenerative medicine and organ transplantation specialists.
In recent years, remarkable progress has been made in the obtention of induced pluripotent stem cells and their differentiation into several cell types, tissues and organs using state-of-art techniques. Hence, these advantages have facilitated the identification of key targets and further defining on the molecular basis of several disorders.
