Modeling Alzheimer's risk using human TREM2-knockout microglia

Amanda McQuade from Dr. Mathew Blurton-Jones’s lab discusses her protocol for differentiating microglia from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and the use of these microglia in vivo and in vitro to uncover the mechanisms of immune activation and neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease. Based on the 2020 Nature Communications paper "Gene Expression and Functional Deficits Underlie TREM2-Knockout Microglia Responses in Human Models of Alzheimer’s Disease"
