  • Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) offer an unprecedented opportunity to study human physiology and disease at the cellular level, and in the practice of precision medicine.
  • This statement: (1) summarizes the state-of-the-science on use of iPSCs for modeling cardiovascular traits and disorders and therapeutic screening; (2) identifies opportunities and challenges in the use of iPSCs for disease modeling and precision medicine; and (3) outlines strategies that support use of iPSCs for biomedical applications.
  • The statement is not intended to address the use of stem cells as regenerative therapy, such as transplantation into the body to treat ischemic heart disease or heart failure.
