    Spotlight: StemRNA Neuro iPSCs – Human Brain Neurons for Functional Assays

    Human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSCs) derived  neural models to study brain disease provide an unlimited resource for disease modelling as well as being a tool for drug screening for effective therapies. The limited access to viable patient neurons from brain tissue itself generates the need for functional and reproducible human neuron cell models. Such cells are now increasingly used for drug development studies as well as supporting research into mechanisms and pathways of various neurological diseases.
