The FPCJ invited one of the people involved in this surgery, Dr. Masayo Takahashi, a project leader at the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology (a world leader in clinical research using iPS cells), to speak about the current state of and future possibilities for retinal regeneration treatment using iPS cells.
