Stem cell research is accelerating around the world.

The ability to engineer and regenerate our own tissues has long been a dream, but with the advancement of stem cell technology, such as the development of new stem cells (which won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2012), scientist and doctors are using stem cells to engineer nearly every tissue and organ in the human body.

Want to learn more about stem cells and the different types? Our cofounder, Alex, wrote a blog post here.
