Neurological Disease Modeling

Due to the difficulty in obtaining human brain tissue for experimental studies, animal models have traditionally been popular tools for neurological disease modeling and therapeutic evaluation. In recent years, however, researchers have begun using induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to generate more representative models for studying human neurological disease. These iPSC-based models, including iPSC-derived neurons, glia, neural organoids, and co-cultures, hold tremendous potential for drug discovery applications and studying human neurological disease. Researchers can now generate patient-specific differentiated cell types, bridging the translational gap between studies using animal models and clinical research.
