Scientists Successfully Force Cells To Change Their Identity

As far as we’re concernd, scientists can perform magic!

They’ve figured out how to make one type of cell transform into another, opening up the possibility of one day being able to repair patients' organs instead of getting them new ones from donors.

While stem cells have long been thought to be the answer to this type of problem, scientists are starting to believe that we can bypass stem cells altogether and just trick normal cells into turning into something else.

We hope they continue to make progress in this area! So many people could be helped by this!!
