Cell-Based Analyses for Neuroscience Research
Infographic Sep 19, 2018
Cell-based assays are prevalent within neuroscience. Some typical applications include investigations into the underlying mechanisms of neuronal signaling and neurodegeneration.
However, subtle, progressive cellular changes are difficult to capture using traditional technologies. Techniques that facilitate consistent monitoring of cell biology in vitro over time are therefore necessary to characterize these dynamic processes.

The availability of technologies for the generation of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from somatic cells has allowed researchers to generate limitless pools of iPSCs retaining the genetic makeup of the somatic cells from which they were derived. Together, iPSCs and CRISPR-Cas9 systems provide researchers with effective in vitro tools for assessing gene function, disease modeling, and regenerative therapy.READ MORE
