DIRECTOR’S BLOG: SKIN CELLS TO NEURONS: DISEASE-IN-A-DISH PROMISES SHORTCUT TO DISCOVERY

Pin It

NIMH Director, Thomas Insel, discusses recent papers which make use of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, a new tool that may make it possible to study the molecular and cellular workings of neurodevelopment, even in an adult with a brain disorder. For neurodevelopmental disorders, iPS cells could be a transformative technology that allows researchers to study how and when brain development goes off track. http://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/director/index.shtml#p142227
