Brief description The brain is produced from stem cells that have the capacity to make all the mature cells in the brain, both during development, and after injury. Brain stem cells are of interest due to the therapeutic potential to alter their function for regenerative medicine or treatment of neurodegenerative disorders. These stem cells also have characteristics in common with brain tumour cells. We seek to identify genes important in brain stem cells and brain tumours, in order to identify new targets for therapy.
