Executive Summary

While some stem cell companies strive to develop neatly packaged products for specific medical niches, and some aim to supply research tools others will use, Fate Therapeutics is planning to do all that and more. The La Jolla, CA-based start-up founded in November 2007 has recruited an all-star team of scientists, clinicians, executives, and investors who together are pursuing the ultimate prize-the ability to restore health to diseased or damaged cells, and to find new therapeutics for many kinds of conditions that currently have limited or no treatment options.

iZumi & Pierian Join Forces to Advance EMerging iPS Cell Platform

Every so often an undeniably important technology emerges resulting in the consolidation of IP and the alignment of thought leaders around a few main players. The new battleground is stem cells. And though the two heavy hitters in the promising induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell space, Ipierian and Fate Therapeutics, are perhaps less aggressive in publicly asserting their dominance, they've positioned themselves as leading competitors in the still-nascent but rapidly advancing area of cellular reprogramming.
