Shinya Yamanaka

Balzan Preis 2010 für Stammzellen: Biologie und potenzielle Anwendungen

Für die Entdeckung einer Methode zur Transformation ausdifferenzierter Zellen in solche mit Eigenschaften embryonaler Stammzellen.

Shinya Yamanaka, born in Osaka on 4 September 1962, is a Japanese citizen. He is Director of the Center for iPS Cell Research and Application (CiRA) at Kyoto University, a position he has held since 2008. He also holds the following positions: Professor at the Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS), Kyoto University (since 2007), Senior Investigator at the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease in San Francisco (since 2007), as well as that of Professor of Anatomy at the University of California, San Francisco.
He received his M.D. from Kobe University in 1987 and a Ph.D. in Pharmacology from Osaka City University Graduate School in 1993. That same year he joined the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease, San Francisco.
In 1996 Professor Yamanaka returned to Osaka City University, where he remained until 1999, when he took up a position at the Nara Institute of Science and Technology. In 2004 he moved to the Institute for Frontier Medical Sciences at Kyoto University.
Shinya Yamanaka has authored over 90 scientific publications, more than half in the last four years on the topic of “induced pluripotent stem cells”. Among his most important works we would cite:
