Stem Cells and Drug Discovery

Stem cells are extraordinary cells, having many features and advantages that could revolutionise drug development and healthcare applications. Lilian Hook at Plasticell Limited discusses how they are capable of both self-renewal and differentiation to mature somatic cells in vivo and in vitro, and as such offer a limitless, consistent supply of physiologically relevant cells for applications such as cell replacement therapies, drug development and disease modelling.
