Andras Nagy has been seminal to the field of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. He was first to create adult animals from mouse embryonic stem cells using tetraploid embryo complementation technology. His genetic tools are now used by thousands of researchers. He derived the first Canadian human embryonic stem cells and developed the first transgene-free induced pluripotential stem cells. His vision is to find cures for complex human diseases.
