(A). Based on induced stem cell techniques akin to those used for research purposes in mice to trigger regeneration of repaired cells. [b]Based on is not the right idiom to refer/modify to the "scientists"[/b]

(B). Based on induced stem cell techniques akin to those used for research purposes in mice so that the regeneration of repaired cells may be triggered. Same reason as in A

(C). Using induced stem cell techniques akin to those used for research purposes in mice to regenerate repaired cells, CORRECT ANSWER. Concise and properly modifies "Scientists".

(D). Using induced stem cell techniques akin to those used for research purposes in mice, which triggers regeneration of repaired cells. first part of the modifier is correct, but "which triggers regeneration of repaired cells" refers to mice, the nearest noun. which changes the meaning.

(E). Using induced stem cell techniques akin to those used for research purposes in mice that trigger regeneration of repaired cells. Same reason as D, just that 'which' is replaced with 'that'.
