Breakthrough in the production of dopamine neurons for Parkinson’s disease.


Stem cell treatments for neurodegenerative diseases are expected to reach clinical trials soon.  One major task en route to the clinic is to generate standardized good manufacturing practice (GMP)-grade human-pluripotent stem cell derived neural-progenitors which will mature and function in the adult brain after transplantation.  However, it remains a challenge for researchers to control stem cells accurately in the lab
