Our lab creates in vitro models of human neurodegenerative diseases by converting patients’ skin fibroblasts into disease-affected neural cells. This enables us to screen thousands of drug-like compounds in search of potential therapeutics that slow or stop the degeneration of these cells in petri dishes — and eventually in patients.
