Abstract

Stem cells hold enormous potential to regenerate an entire organ for organ replacement therapy. Recently, in Nature, Hirsch et al. (2017) restored the expression of laminin-332 in epidermal stem cells isolated from an individual with junctional epidermolysis bullosa and grafted the entire skin back to save the patient's life.
