Approaches for HF regeneration using of human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs). Currently, two respective approaches exist. In the “classic” approach, epithelial and mesenchymal components optimized for trichogenic EMIs are prepared and combined in vivo to form HF structures. Another approach takes advantage of pluripotency of hiPSCs, 3D integumentary organ systems with HFs are microdissected from cystic structures generated by grafting hiPSCs in vivo. HFs can be dissected from 3D integumentary organ systems for downstream applications including hair transplantation
