Prof. Yamanaka worked very hard to get this work done; he once organized a marathon to rais efunding for his lab. After winning the Nobel prize, he also did not forget to thank the lab staff who stuck with him despite the lack of funding. An embarrassed ministry of education was found allocating lots of research funding for this field in the following year :-p.
