Microcapsules Developed to Direct Neural Stem Cells

In order to treat a variety of genetic disorders of the central nervous system, including Hunter syndrome, biomedical engineering professor Stefan Zappe and his research team are developing a neural stem cell therapy.

Stem cells can differentiate into a diverse range of cell types. These primal cells can multiply through cell division, and retain the ability to renew themselves.

Zappe said,
