Neural Progenitor Cells: Better Biological Models of Neurodegenerative Disease
Scientists are challenged by the lack of advanced biological models of the nervous system to produce meaningful results that lead to better, more precise treatments for neurodegenerative diseases. As part of our pledge to provide validated models to better recapitulate in vivo systems, ATCC has created neural progenitor cells (NPCs) from normal and Parkinson’s disease-derived induced pluripotent stem cells. NPCs are ideal in vitro models as they can be induced to differentiate down all three neural lineages. In this webinar we will focus on the Parkinson’s disease-derived NPCs, detailing their neural biomarker expression profiles during dopaminergic neuron differentiation and validating their use in toxicological studies.
