They are unlocking the secrets of how cells in the body work and how they might be -- program.
To fight everything from cancer and blood disease to alzheimer's and diabetes.
All by using the stem cells and manipulating them according to what you need to treat.
That form of biology has a has the opportunity to to represent.
Real clinical breakthroughs and and to do that within a period of time that that we can all -- -- answer.
Doctor -- -- directs the gates center for regenerative medicine and stem cell biology.
The vast array of -- with simultaneous -- search on many potential breakthroughs for years and -- I never.
Would have dreamed.
That we would be in a position to be able to do some things that.
That we are now for example donated blood has a limited shelf life requiring more than a week of testing.
Here they're working on -- it unlimited supply of blood -- -- lap free of contaminants which could then be sent where it's most needed.
Developing bone marrow matches any patient in need -- -- transplant it testing cancer treatments using the patient's own stem cells.
In the foreseeable future we could have therapies and in humans that are changing.
I think we're.
Beginning to see.
You know a change in the paradigm of how will treat patients in the future and so this is.
We hope it's just the tip of the iceberg.
