The author reflects on a study which directed urine stem cells to be converted into bladder type cells such as endothelial cells and smooth muscle cells. He says that the study is based on previous research on cell multipotency as well as studies that show induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) do not develop tumors when embedded in the body. He adds that the study results have shown how the urine stem cells were implanted into mice, which in return have grown human teeth.
