It is, at times, hard to conceptualize just how accelerated these findings have been. At the time of Thomson's initial publication in 1998, it had been nearly two decades since embryonic stem cells in mice had been first described in two separate publications by Martin and Evans and Kaufman in 1981 (Evans and Kaufman, 1981, Martin, 1981).
