Meeting Agenda/Notes

Human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) represent a potentially transformative platform for drug screening, disease modeling, and regenerative medicine. However, these applications depend on the ability to generate somatic cells possessing correct phenotypes. With this consideration in mind, I will describe completely defined methods for generating motor neurons from specific regions in the hindbrain and spinal cord and discuss emerging studies utilizing these previously inaccessible cell populations.
