Scientists in Boston are creating a stem cell library that could write a new chapter for far-reaching possibilities in sickle cell disease (SCD) research and innovative therapy development.
The library comprises sickle cell disease-specific induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which can can renew as many times as necessary without any type of differentiation, meaning they can be directed to grow as any tissue or organ. This characteristic makes iPSCs particularly helpful to create disease models in labs, helping scientists understand how diseases develop.
