  1. Genetic Manipulation of Mouse ES Cells toward a Specific Neuronal Fate Anne Chiaramello, Ph.D Associate Professor George Washington University Medical Center Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology Tel: 202-994-2173 anaaec@gwumc.edu June 27, 2007 NIH/NINDS R01NS041391

  2. Objective To direct neural fate of mouse ES Cells by genetic manipulation for cell replacement therapies in the context of specific neurodegenerative disorders and CNS injuries. Embryonic Stem Cell LIF Neural Cell Lineage bFGF Neural Stem Cell Progenitor Cell Glioblast ? Neuroblast Inhibitory Neuron (GABAergic) Projection Neuron (Glutamatergic) Oligo Astrocytes
