Title Development of a Novel Microfluidic Platform for Multiple Sclerosis Study.
Publication Date Aug 2012
Media Count 6p
Personal Author I. H. Yang
Abstract Neural stem cells (NSC) are multipotent cells isolated from striatal tissue and the subventricular zone, which is one of a few neurogenic areas in the adult brain. Evidence suggests that NSC proliferation and differentiation occur under physiological conditions and can be enhanced in certain pathological conditions following neural damage. However, the communication between soluble factors of inflammatory T cells and NSCs that affect the proliferation and differentiation of NSCs remain unknown. The goal of this project is to develop a novel NSC culture platform that is capable of both compartmentalizing and fluidically isolating microdomains of NSCs.
