Novel Strategies for Cell-based Neural Reconstruction

Project description

Stem cell therapy could restore local and distant neuronal brain networks

Science has made tremendous progress in understanding the neuronal circuitry of the brain in both health and disease, as well as in terms of its structure and function. Our knowledge of local and distant brain circuitry seen in neurodegenerative diseases, combined with the potential of human embryonic stem cells for cell and tissue regeneration, can advance the treatment of debilitating diseases like Parkinson's and Huntington's. The EU-funded NSC-Reconstruct project is pushing the frontiers in research on stem cells for single cell types. In an ambitious effort, the team plans to reconstruct local networks through the incorporation of numerous cell types, and to restore complex networks and cortical projections, for truly functional and effective repair in complicated conditions like neurodegenerative diseases and stroke.
