Meet Communications Biology authors from Japan

Meet our authors from RIKEN Bioresource Research Center, Meijo University, and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology in Japan to learn about their fascinating invention for improving pluripotent stem cell culturing.

In this video, three authors (Drs. Yohei Hayashi, Kazuhiro Hotta, and Kimio Sumaru) talk about how they came to develop an automatic cell processing system that helps researchers maintain the culture of human induced pluripotent stem cells by selectively eliminating spontaneously differentiated cells. This story illustrates the power of interdisciplinary collaboration that encompasses stem cell research, materials engineering, machine learning, and computer vision. These researchers also tell us about how they hope to bring this technology to the next level. This work has recently been published in Communications Biology.
