Neural Stem Cells to Repair the Injured Brain: A Stroke of Genius

A talk by Dr. Cindi M. Morshead (BSc 1986 UC)

The treatment of neurological diseases or trauma remains the last frontier for modern medicine because there are no effective treatments to repair the injured central nervous system and restore function. Stem cells are the future of regenerative medicine. Cindi Morshead will focus on neural stem cells; the fundamental biology of these rare, resident cells and their potential to repair the stroke-injured brain. With a view towards clinical translation, she will also touch on exciting new ideas and potential therapeutics that have emerged in regenerative medicine to treat the injured central nervous system.
