StemCellShorts - What are induced pluripotent stem cells?

The third in a series of short (around 1 minute) animated films that answer basic questions about stem cell research.

Celebrated by the 2012 Nobel Prize in Medicine, a type of cell known as an "induced pluripotent stem cell" or "iPS cell" has important implications for the emerging field of biomedical technology. In this video, Canadian scientist Dr. Mick Bhatia explains how iPS cells are created and how they can be used to create new therapies for human disease.

For a more detailed look at iPS cells, and accompanying resources, see Stem cells - the future: an introduction to iPS cells.

Stem cells - the future, le futur, die Zukunft, il futuro, nasza przyszłość, el futuro

We're excited to announce that our short film, Stem cells - the future: an introduction to iPS cells, is now available in six languages and with a supporting quiz for the classroom. You can now order a DVD or view the film online and download the quiz, all in your language.

W tym przykuwającym uwagę szesnastominutowym filmie wiodący naukowcy opowiadają historię indukowanych pluripotencjalnych komórek macierzystych (komórek iPS). To niezwykłe odkrycie naukowe zmieniło całkowicie sposób myślenia o biologii człowieka. Za to odkrycie Shinya Yamanaka wraz z Johnem Gurdonem zostali uhonorowani nagrodą Nobla w dziedzinie medycyny w 2012 roku.

Renowned experts offer advice on generating human induced pluripotent stem cell banks

Procedures for production of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells for use in therapy are reaching the point at which they will be suitable for use in clinical trials.
 
A team of internationally renowned scientists led by the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine’s Emeritus Professor Sir Ian Wilmut have today published an opinion piece in the journal CellStemCell, arguing that while in the future it might be possible to derive iPS cell lines on an individual basis – so that a patient would receive his or her own cells as a treatment – it seems unlikely that these will be used as a source for large numbers of patients in the near future due to time and cost restraints.

Making blood from stem cells, iPS cells from skin cells and improving the lives of those with diabetes are just a few of the stories that are touched on in this delightful comic. A colourful and enticing introduction to some of the stem cell research happening in Scotland and the directions the science is taking. Ideal for use in the classroom, at festivals and events.

Animation: Disease modelling with cells

How are stem cells used to model disease in the laboratory? This 3-minute animation gives a clear, simple and visually appealing explanation of what disease modelling is, why it is useful and how it is done.

This animation was created for EuroStemCell by animator Duncan Brown, with scientific content by researcher Dr Christian Unger and voiceover by Dr Nathan Adams. It is supported by an accompanying factsheet on reprogrammed cells in disease modelling.
