Open sharing of scientific data and standard methods will allow researchers to collaborate on projects and accelerate understanding of neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers have successfully used stem cell therapy to regenerate neurons in damaged areas of zebra fish spinal cords. The treatment helped to restore movement following SCI. The findings raise the possibility of developing new treatments for humans suffering paralysis as a result of spinal cord injury.
New protocol will allow researchers to generate microglia from individual patients.
Researchers generate microglia from stem cells derived from the skin. They believe their findings could help advance the understanding of the role microglia plays in Alzheimer's.
Study overturns conventional thought about how axons grow during embryonic development.
Researchers inject an experimental stem cell treatment into the damaged cervical spine of a recently paralyzed young man, restoring a level of function into his hands and arms.
A new study reports clinical grade stem cell lines will enable the development of new therapies and accelerate early stage clinical research.
