I am trying to move to human ES cell research. I know this is a hot area that many people are jumping into. But on the other hand, it's so new that most research projects just start up and focus on either pluripotency maintenance or directed differentiation of hESC. Some friends warned me that it's pretty risky field because of the difficulties of working with hESC and limitation of federal funding. Although it's hard to predict the future of hESC research, I would like to hear the opinion of current hESC research from people who are familiar with it. I am also wondering if the industry is also getting interested in hESC research and needs such experts.
