By optimizing neurons with CRISPR gene editing technology, researchers will have new ways to study genetic influences on brain health and disease, a new study reports.
CRISPR gene editing has allowed researchers to prevent angiogenesis of the retina occurring in mice. Researchers say the new technology could help prevent vision loss in those with retinal diseases.
Researchers have developed a new method to accurately and rapidly locate proteins within brain cells.
With the aid of CRISPR gene editing techniques, researchers have identified a new biomarker for Alzheimer's disease. The study reports a deficiency of the protein STIM1 could be implicated in the sporadic version of the neurodegenerative disease.
