Congratulations to Giulia Carola for completing her PhD, titled: “Investigating Early Functional Alteration in a Human iPSC-Based Model of Parkinson Disease”.
Our research article “Patient-Specific iPSC-Derived Astrocytes Contribute to Non-Cell-Autonomous Neurodegeneration in Parkinson’s Disease“, has been selected by the prestigious Stem Cell Reports magazine to be part of its annual “Best of” compilation. The study has been selected based on the number of downloads by readers, a criterion that publishers consider the most impartial way to evaluate the interest in a specific work.
We participated in the XIV European Meeting on Glial Cells in Health and Disease that was held in Porto, Portugal. Lucas and Meritxell presented their results in patient-specific iPSC-derived microglia and astrocytes.
On June 5, the Department of Pathology and Experimental Therapy of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Science from the UB organized their first Research Meeting. As a part of the department, we participated with a poster explaining our work modeling Parkinson’s Disease using iPS cell technology.
