    To lead iPS cell research for clinical applications (1) -All 2 episodes-

Dr. Takahashi Masayo, expected as one of those who will be leading this field of research, first saw stem cells in the US about 15 years ago, and immediately became convinced that such cells can be used for retinal regeneration. She was the first researcher in the world who succeeded in generating retinal cells and retinal pigment epithelial cells (RPECs), first from ES cells, and then from iPS cells.
