Understanding the pathogenesis of lissencephaly with induced pluripotent stem cells (BMC Blogs)

New research published in Molecular Brain has reported a characterization of the pathogenic mechanism of human lissencephaly using induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC). In this blog, Dr Hideyuki Okano, the Dean and Professor of Physiology of Keio University School of Medicine, tells us more about iPSC-based modeling of lissencephaly, which shows a congenital brain malformation. 11 more words
