Stem cells contain numerous valuable properties and characteristics applicable to regenerative medicine. However, embryonic stem cells are riddled with ethical issues, and adult stem cells are fickle and difficult to research. The process of creating induced pluripotent stem cells reverts somatic cells into an embryonic-like-stem-cell. Induced pluripotent stem cells have potential applications in bioengineering organs, cell replacement therapies, cancer research, and drug screenings.
