When describing in an interview in Japan, what is was like to try to find the home run discovery that mature cells can be converted to stem cells. (Translated) "I had so many people against me...I knew something was there but it was so difficult to find... It was like trying to swing at a very fast thrown ball with a bat in a pitch dark room...We could not see the ball coming or exactly where it came from but we knew it was there..." In 2012 he and John Gurdon were awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for the discovery. In 2013 he was awarded the $3 million Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences for his work. Dr. Yamanaka serves as a senior investigator at the UCSF-affiliated J. David Gladstone Institutes in San Francisco, California (UCSF); and as a professor of anatomy at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Yamanaka is also the current president of the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR). Please note that Neostem is working in an exclusive collaboration with UCSF on ground breaking stem cell research.

In other words, just because some people refute your findings and methods which you have pursued with conviction, doesn't mean that they are right and you are wrong. The world of scientific research and discovery is often like that I think.
