課程簡述:
想認識人體幹細胞的發展嗎?或是可以應用在那些疾病上?在本次一個半小時內演講的內容,主要是在探討誘導性多功能幹細胞(IPSCs )和胚胎幹細胞(ESCs)的發展近況,並且了解未來在再生醫學上使用的展望。
歡迎有興趣的同學踴躍參加。

Human embryonic stem cells (ESCs) have the potential to be induced to differentiate into any of the hundreds of cell types in the human body, raising exciting new prospects for therapeutic applications in regenerative medicine. The potential to generate any specific cells from ESCs offers the possibility to establish new models of mammalian development and to create new sources of cells for regenerative medicine. Therefore, it is essential to understand the gold standard of the ESCs and to control ESC differentiation. The combination of somatic nuclear transfer (SCNT) technology and ESCs bring the new hope to derive patient-specific ESC equivalents which may provide powerful new tools to evade the immune system, study basic disease mechanisms, and establish screens for drug discovery. However, despite their developmental potential, sources used to generate human ESC lines raise serious ethical concerns, which recently prompted efforts to reprogram somatic cells back to a pluripotent state. Pluripotent stem cells allow the study of embryonic development and cell differentiation and offer much hope for regenerative medicine.
Therefore, this lecture will summarize the recently development on IPS cells and ESCs. Furthermore, to compare several important complicating features of ESCs and iPS cells that may compromise their future use for therapies in regenerative medicine.
