SnapShot: Key Advances in hiPSC Disease Modeling

Cell Stem Cell. 2016 Mar 3;18(3):422. doi: 10.1016/j.stem.2016.02.013.


This SnapShot presents a timeline of key advances in directed differentiation and disease modeling using human pluripotent stem cells. The selected papers are color-coded for different systems and show progress in the field, from making disease- and tissue-specific hiPSC derivatives to the development of disease models for drug screening and therapeutics and the generation of complex systems that mimic tissue architecture and self-organized structures. To view this SnapShot, open or download the PDF.
