A Cell Press partner journal
See the unseen. Change the unchanged.
The Innovation ¡ª published by Cell Press in partnership with members of the Youth
Innovation Promotion Association (YIPA),a part of the Chinese Academy of
Sciences¡ªis a new broad-scope, open access journal publishing basic and applied
research that has impact for the benefit of society.
On the cover: The pace of science and technology is accelerating, and the future is arriving much faster. During the great process of reaching the future, the now highly comprehensive and interdisciplinary network of science, so-called 'ScienceX' by The Innovation, plays a more important role than ever before. We believe the development of interdisciplinary science and technology concerns our destiny in the coming future.

Historical view of the development of reprogramming and schematic of chemical reprogramming from somatic cells to human CiPSCs


Cell plasticity represents the ability of cells to acquire new characteristics. Cell plasticity can be reset in somatic cells via cellular reprogramming, a process that occurs in regeneration. However, cell plasticity occurs rarely in humans. Recently, Guan et al. recreated cell plasticity in mature human cells, which they found to be essential for reprogramming human somatic cells to pluripotent stem cells using only small molecules. As the first study demonstrates that chemical compounds can completely reprogram human somatic cells to a pluripotent state, it is a paradigm shift in developing pharmacological or therapeutic reprogramming approaches to control human cells.
