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.

StemCellShorts - What are embryonic stem cells?

Part 2 in a series of short (around 1 minute) animated videos answering basic questions about stem cell research. This video is about embryonic stem cells and is narrated by Janet Rossant.

Since their first discovery, embryonic stem (ES) cells have been the focus of intense research and public scrutiny. Derived from discarded 5-day old embryos (typically obtained from patients undergoing in vitro fertilization), this type of stem cell possesses the ability to create any tissue in the human body and replicate indefinitely in culture conditions. Because of these properties, ES cells represent a unique research opportunity to understand human development and create new therapies for disease.

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.

Da embrione a neurone: nuovo video realizzato da scienziati che lavorano sulle cellule staminali a Milano

Guarda questo video per saperne di più su come gli scienziati istruiscono le cellule staminali– trasformandole da cellule staminali embrionali pluripotenti a cellule neurali specializzate.

New stem cell film: an introduction to iPS cells

Last month, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2012 was awarded jointly to Sir John B. Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka "for the discovery that mature cells can be reprogrammed to become pluripotent".

STEM CELLS - THE FUTURE: AN INTRODUCTION TO IPS CELLS by Amy Hardie and Clare Blackburn tells the story of this extraordinary scientific discovery that has changed the way we think about human biology.

The BIG view of Stem Cells - 10 December 2012

On 10 December 2012, John Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka will be awarded their Nobel Prize in Stockholm. Biology teachers, students, and anyone with an interest in stem cells can help us celebrate the award by taking part in our BIG view of stem cells.

Our new film STEM CELLS - THE FUTURE is about the particular area of stem cell research pioneered by John Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka - induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells).
