Stem cell leader awarded $2.3 million grant for Parkinson's
Date:2/4/2011

s or postmortem brain tissues. Now, the ability to obtain iPS cells from patients' skin cells, which can be reprogrammed into neurons provides researchers with a model to study the pathological development of Parkinson's in a human system.

The main goal of the collaborative effort is to identify key molecular events involved in the early stages of the disease, which can be exploited as potential points of therapeutic intervention.

"This is an extremely exciting development - the ability to create stem cells from skin cells taken from patients with Parkinson's disease, then use those stem cells to create networks of neurons which can then be studied to give clues about the abnormal function of nerve cells in this debilitating disease - that would never have been conceived, let alone come to fruition, without the significant investment in regenerative medicine by CIRM," said Salk president William R. Brody, M.D., Ph.D.
