Microscopic view of fluorescently labeled differentiated neural stem cells (NCSs)

Generate functional and relevant cell models

Neural stem cells (NSCs) are important tools for scientists in many disciplines and as with all stem cell research, controlling differentiation and cell fate is key to meaningful results. The capacity of thier self-renewing, multipotent capacity to differentiate into neurons and glial cells, NSCs are a valuable source not only for neuroscience research, but also to treat neurodegenerative diseases and other neurological disorders.

From online protocols to handbooks and webinars, this collection of neural stem cell resources is intended to help ensure your research success.
