The remarkable speed with which the field of stem cell biology has evolved is unprecedented and has already changed the way we do science. In this series of articles we have invited leading experts to present their efforts in moving from the bench to the bedside, with the hope that we can learn from the experiences of the pioneers. Progress whether one likes it or not The ability to make embryonic stem cells from human cells allowed us to examine early developmental events and study human disease with human models. In the short span of a decade, over 150 lines are now available in the embryonic stem cell registry maintained by the US government
