/Santa Fe Springs, CA/ October 24th, 2008. Dr. Shi-Lung Lin is to present at the Stem Cell Program at the Institute of Cellular & Organismic Biology at Academica Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan on Nov 20th, 2008. The topic of the talk is on “Mir-302-Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Generation and Reprogramming”. Dr. Shi-lung Lin, who is an assistant professor at the Department of Cell and Neurobiology, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A., recently published a paper on the RNA journal regarding the novel method of introducing intronic microRNA (RNAi) to induce cells into pluripotent stem cell like state. The potential for further development and application of this discovery is boundless.
