With the outstanding development of stem cell research, as that of iPS cell research, the time will come soon when we will be able to judge and make our own decisions about our body on a cellular level. In the 5 theaters of the exhibit, you will see situations of disease or injury that may happen to anyone. Then, you will be given the possibility of treating yourself with iPS cell therapy and the chance to think it through. Plus, when you learn about the mechanisms and principles of cells, you will suddenly realize that you are made of, and kept alive by, cells.
