Stem cell in Disease modelling and drug discovery.
As explained Stem cells are unspecialized cells which have the capability to differentiate in to different type of cells and tissues which are the building blocks of body, which is done by the process of regeneration and degeneration which can used to overcome the limitations of animal models in certain disorders. As well as in drug screening and drug discovery .Several strategies are used to generate such disease models using either embryonic stem cells (ES cells) or patient-specific induced PSCs (iPSCs), which is creating new era in the field of disease modelling and drug discovery.
