Use of hESC-derived models to identify new therapeutic targets for treatment of neurodegenerative diseases

Project: Research

Project Description

The project will use hESC-derived neurons and microglia to screen for small molecules that upregulate expression of neuroprotective gene networks. The project aims to validate two pathways for neuroprotection in Alzheimer’s (AD) and Parkinson’s (PD) diseases.
