October 2018

Seminar – Stewart Anderson, MD – “Using Stem Cell Derived Cortical Interneurons to Study Development and Treat Disease”

October 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

I am a Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia-based faculty in the Department of Psychiatry at UPenn. The focus of my laboratory concerns the molecular and cellular mechanisms that govern the development of the mammalian forebrain. We use mouse genetics, forebrain slice and dissociated culture techniques, as well as mouse and human pluripotent stem cells in cell culture and transplantation experiments to study the fate determination of interneurons of the cerebral cortex.
