The article focuses on a research conducted by researcher Oliver Brustle related to the conversion of fibroblasts into neurons. Brustle has developed a method for the conversion of fibroblasts into induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell lines but he believes that escaping pluripotent stage can save time. It also mentions that Brustle has filed a patent for differentiating human embryonic stem (ES) cells into neurons.
