Stem cells network
iPSC stem cells – cells derived from human skin or blood samples – are used to investigate fundamental disease processes on a micro scale. Working at this intricate level of detail allows scientists to examine the molecular changes that underpin the development of brain diseases. It may hold the key to understanding the ways to prevent, delay or reverse these changes.
UK universities now have the technical capability to support collaborations with industry.
