A Scalable, Highly Reproducible Method for Creating 3-D Neural Constructs

In a recent paper in PNAS, Michael P. Schwarz and co-authors describe a method for creating structurally complex, 3D neural constructs for neurotoxicity testing, by co-culturing human embryonic stem cell-derived neural progenitor cells, endothelial cells, mesenchymal cells, and microglia/macrophage precursors. The resulting neural constructs more closely replicate human brain tissue than monocultures or animal-derived cells, […]
