Shinya Yamanaka interview

The Asahi Shimbun published a few hours ago a very interesting interview with Shinya Yamanaka. Yamanaka is a pioneer in the field of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), as he was the first man to develop iPSCs both from animal and human somatic cells.

Yamanaka has won numerous awards for his research, including:
  • The Wolf Prize in Medicine in 2011 with Rudolf Jaenisch
  • The Millennium Technology Prize in 2012 
  • The Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 2013

The interview is really interesting, with Yamanaka talking a bit about his personal life as a celebrity and his future plans. Click here to read it !
