Use of iPSC-Derived Smooth Muscle Cells to Model Physiology and Pathology

Challenges both specific, e.g. the lack of specific markers to thoroughly validate human induced pluripotent stem cell-smooth muscle cells (hiPSC-SMC), and general, e.g. a lack of transparency and consensus around methodology in the field, remain. Scientists highlight the recent successes and remaining challenges of the hiPSC-SMC model.
