  • ABOUT HSSCRC > Introduction

Reprogramming the somatic cells from patients means that the cells can be differentiated to any kind of body tissue with pluripotency obtained by converting the cell fate. This makes the cell therapy for degenerative disease more practical but also settles the controversy concerning embryo sacrifice and immunological rejection.

As the first iPS cells research center established in Korea, Hans Schöler Stem Cell Research Center (HSSCRC) uses the methods of reprogramming and direct conversion of the somatic cells extracted from the patient and produces "patient specific stem cell" for therapeutic purposes by a multi-disciplinary approach.
