Integrating Biomaterials and Stem Cells for Neural Regeneration

Maclean, Francesca; Rodriguez, Alexandra; Parish, Clare; Williams, Richard J; Nisbet, David

Description

The central nervous system has a limited capacity to regenerate, and thus, traumatic injuries or diseases often have devastating consequences. Therefore, there is a distinct need to develop alternative treatments that can achieve functional recovery without side effects currently observed with some pharmacological treatments. Combining biomaterials with pluripotent stem cells (PSCs), either embryonic or induced, has the potential to revolutionize the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases...[Show more]
