  • Shinya Yamanaka, MD, PhD, a practicing surgeon, has had an outstanding research career in the field of pluripotent stem cells, with numerous seminal contributions. Dr. Yamanaka was the co-discoverer of the Nanog gene that encodes a key regulator of pluripotent stem cells. Several years ago he showed that adult cells could be reprogrammed to pluripotent stem cells called induced pluripotent stem cells. In 2008, he successfully established human induced pluripotent stem cells, representing a sea change discovery in the field. Dr. Yamanaka was awarded the Albert Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research for his work in 2009.
