3D stem cell cultures show promise for improving the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases

Researchers from Tufts University (MA, USA) and the Jackson Laboratory (CT, USA) have collaborated to develop 3D in vitro human tissue culture models for the CNS.  The tissue culture models were created using cell lines from healthy individuals and from people with Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.

The paper, which has been published in ACS Biomaterials Science and Engineering, may help researchers better understand the progression of neurodevelopmental diseases and allow for the exploration of new treatment options.
