Today’s recommended paper is:
A Human Stem Cell Model of Early Alzheimer’s Disease Pathology in Down Syndrome
Yichen Shi et al. (2012)
Science Translational Medicine 4 (124), 124ra29
Submitted by Claire Cox:
“I found this paper fascinating as it demonstrates the potential of iPSC technology for studying disease pathology in culture. Generating cortical neurons from iPSCs and ES cells that have signs of Alzheimer’s Disease is remarkable and could pave the way for future studies such as drug screens.”
