Learn about human "disease in a dish," induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technology that has the potential to completely change medicine in terms of understanding individual variation, underlying disease mechanisms, transforming and personalizing drug discovery and targeting treatments, sometimes at the level of correcting a single gene mutation. It is the ultimate in personalized medicine – a mechanism to explore individualized treatments and cures in a patient’s own heart cells.
