Dr. Bruce Conklin, Senior Investigator at the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease, discusses the potential applications of stem cells in personalized medicine. By introducing a set of genes called the "Yamanaka factors," a simple skin sample can be transformed into something as complex as functioning heart tissue -- which could potentially be used to completely personalize medical testing.
