neural stem cells

Neural stem cells in Alzheimer’s disease research are versatile tool. Alzheimer’s disease patient-derived fibroblast are reprogrammed into iPS cells. iPS cells are converted upon neural induction into neural stem cells. Neural stem cells are differentiated into neurons. This “disease in a dish” approach allow track down molecular background of Alzheimer’s disease causes and symptoms.
