iPSC-NSCs with potential

Our lab is working with induced pluripotent stem cell-derived neural stem cell lines (HIP-NSCs) in an effort to examine their potential to regenerate damaged brain tissue after a neural injury.

Meet our pigs!

Through pigs like these, we are looking to determine if NSCs can survive and integrate into an injury site within the brain. Someday, we hope this type of treatment can be translated to humans!

Stereotaxic Injector System

Induced pluripotent neural stem cells are transplanted into the penumbra region of the infarct (area of tissue damage) using a stereotaxic injector device.

Amie is Awarded a Morris Animal Foundation Fellowship

Amie Goedeke received a fellowship to work on the derivation of canine induced pluripotent stem cells from the Morris Animal Foundation. These unique canine stem cells can be turned into neurons to help daschunds with spinal cord injury or mesenchymal cells for dogs with bone or cartilage defects or arthritis….

Amber, Congrats on Vet School!

Amber was a key part of our pig stroke model team. Her project was studying behavioral changes post-stroke and she assisted with histological and MRI studies. This work won her 4th place in the 2013 College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Undergraduate Research Symposium Oral Competition (see abstract here). We…
