24 Hours of Stem Cells

Watch the ISSCR 2013 presentation by Dr. Birgitt Schuele of the Parkinson's Institute. Generating Parkinson's Disease models using Footprint-free Reprogramming and a Novel Method for NSC Differentiation The ability to generate iPSC-derived models that recapitulate phenotypes associated with Parkinson's Disease holds promise to accelerate understanding of the disease with a goal of finding a cure. By using non-integrating Sendai-virus (SeV) based CytoTune® reprogramming technologies, we have created patient-derived iPSCs of known genetic backgrounds, and used a novel method to create neural stem cells (NSCs) without going through the laborious process of EB formation followed by rosette isolation.
