Identification and Characterization of Neural Stem Cells: Why is This so Darned Difficult?


Unlike the vast majority of mammalian cells, stem cells are defined by what they do as opposed to how they look. This presents challenges in identifying neural stem cells with a high degree of probability and makes measuring their frequency problematic. Learn from world-renowned neural stem cell expert Brent Reynolds in this view-on-demand webinar. Using lessons learned from two decades of isolating and expanding neural stem cells, Dr. Reynolds explores why neural stem cell enumeration is so difficult, discusses strategies to offset these challenges, and investigates new approaches to isolating and utilizing defined populations of neural stem cell progeny.
