Gladstone's Shinya Yamanaka wins Kyoto prize
Date:6/18/2010

ology of stem cells and opened new possibilities for the practical applications of that knowledge," said R.Sanders Williams, MD, PhD, Gladstone president. "That adult cells could be reprogrammed and assigned different properties is one of the most significant discoveries of this decade."

Since Yamanaka's discovery, he and other scientists have learned more efficient ways to make iPS cells and have used them to create other types of cells including neurons, heart cells etc. Many have made iPS cells from patients with disease and hope to use these human cells to model the disease, so that new drug therapies could be discovered to alleviate human suffering.

The Kyoto Prize is given by the Inamori Foundation, which was established in 1984 by Dr. Kazuo Inamori, founder and chairman emeritus of Kyocera and KDDI Corporation. The Kyoto Prize was established, in line with Dr. Inamori's belief that a human being has no higher calling than to strive for the greater good of society, and that the future of humanity can be assured only when there is a balance between our scientific progress and our spiritual depth. An emblematic feature of the Kyoto Prize is that it is presented not only in recognition of outstanding achievements, but also in honor of the excellent personal characteristics that have shaped those achievements.
