20TH ANNIVERSARY OF HUMAN EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS
20 years ago, in 1998, Prof. Itskovitz-Eldor, in collaboration with Prof. James Thomson from the University of Wisconsin, isolated the first human embryonic stem cells (hESCs). This is considered one of the most important scientific breakthroughs in medical history. In the same year, Prof. Itskovitz-Eldor established the first stem cell research laboratory at the Rappaport Faculty of Medicine at Technion.
