Stem cell research has undergone near-revolutionary change in recent years. A major roadblock on use of the cells was lifted in 2007 with the identification of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which are derived from adult cells as opposed to human embryos. And in the resultant ramp-up in research activity, the use of stem cells as drug discovery tools has emerged alongside their use in developing therapies.

Drug discovery is now a primary focus, given . . .
