Modeling Human Neurological Disease with Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells


This webinar provides an overview of the features and applications of induced pluripotent stem cells with respect to neurological disease modeling. Dr. Vivian Lee (STEMCELL Technologies) discusses the workflow from patient-derived somatic cells to fully-differentiated neural cell types, and compares different strategies for neural induction. Dr. Marina Bershteyn (University of California, San Francisco) discusses how she uses patient-derived iPS cells to study disorders of brain development, with a focus on lissencephaly.
