Turning skin cells into platelets

Good news in biomedicine is published today in the prestigious journal Cell Reports. The study, led by the CMR[B], shows that is possible to convert skin cells into megakaryocytes with the same functions that the ones that are in the human body, able to produce platelets, the blood cell type responsible of the normal blood clotting.  This conversion was induced by a cocktail of 6 factors and takes only 2 weeks.
