Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have succeeded in turning skin cells directly into neural precursor cells, which can develop into one of three types of brain cells and bypass the cells' induced pluripotent stage. The precursor cells have the potential to be produced in laboratories in mass quantities and then used in treatment. The study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
