ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the growing interest of the researchers on induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) in the U.S. It highlights the move of the Supreme Court to throw away a lawsuit that would have hindered federal funding of all human embryonic stem cells (ES) research. However, it notes that the boost of the decision might not go to work on ES rather on iPS. An overview of the factors that motivate significant interest from researchers is also provided.
