Stem cells may provide answer to blood-brain barrier

Madison, Wis. - The blood-brain barrier is a big problem when it comes to getting drugs into the brain, and researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison believe they have found a way to address the problem by using stem cells.

The findings are the result of a collaborative study funded with a grant from the Nat......

"The idea is that we can use this process to mimic what happens in normal development so that we can make a better model of the blood-brain bar......
