Meeting Agenda/Notes

Recent work has shown that significant heterogeneity exists within the primary neural stem cell niche, the subventricular zone (SVZ). However, it is not clear whether these differences contribute to the development of human disorders. I am using a mouse model of the neurodevelopmental disorder Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) to investigate whether certain neural stem cell populations differentially contribute to disease state.
