Techniques: Neuronal cell culture-based model of the human cortex for screening neuroprotective therapies and disease modeling

Disease models TECHNOLOGY: Cell models A neuronal cell culture-based model of the human cortex could be useful for screening neuroprotective compounds and generating models of specific neurological diseases. The model involved generating rosette-type neural stem cells (NSCs)...

Trans-hemispheric express

A University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill team has made human neural progenitor cells directly from fibroblasts and shown the transdifferentiated cells can serve as tumor-homing carriers of chemotherapeutic agents for brain cancer. While...
