Approaching a decades-old goal: Making blood stem cells from patients’ own cells

New technique raises possibility of making all types of blood cells to treat disease Date: May 17, 2017 Source: Boston Children's Hospital Summary: For the first time, researchers have generated blood-forming stem cells in the lab using pluripotent stem cells, which can make virtually every cell type in the body. The advance opens new avenues
