Harnessing the power of stem cells to unlock the secrets of motor neuron disease
Date:5/23/2010

the ultimate goal of developing an effective treatment."

The studies to examine the general health and structure of the different cell types when interacting with each other will be carried out at the University of Edinburgh and also by leading MND researcher Prof Christopher Shaw. Prof Tom Maniatis will work on the third stage of the programme by identifying 'gene expression signatures' associated with the disease.

Dr Brian Dickie concludes: "This is a highly promising field of research to help increase our understanding of this disease. The outcomes from our programme will have a powerful impact in shaping the future of motor neuron disease research and enhancing future international research collaboration. Only by working together across the globe will we achieve our goal of truly defeating motor neuron disease."
