Stem cells from adult tissues were considered for a long time as promising tools for regenerative therapy of neurological diseases, including spinal cord injuries (SCI).
Researchers at GIGA have investigated the impact of pure populations of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and neural crest stem cells (NCSCs) isolated from adult bone marrow in a mouse model of spinal cord injury.
They observed that both cell types induced motor recovery in mice, and modified the inflammatory reaction in the lesion site.
Their preliminary results suggest that both cell types have beneficial effects in experimental SCI.

In collaboration with a team at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), researchers from GIGA-Neurosciences have discovered a new gene responsible for a seizure syndrome called juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME). This discovery was made as part of an international consortium that studies genetic abnormalities responsible for epileptic diseases. It is being published this week inRead more
The LIGHTSHEET MICROSCOPY can deliver optical sections, 3D reconstructions and timelapse movies of whole sample volumes at subcellular resolutions. The fast scan speeds and low phototoxicity of the lightsheet allow to record the development of fluorescent transgenic animals over long time periods, such as zebrafish embryos. Alternatively 3D reconstructions of fixed whole organs or whole embryos,Read more
